What is lithotherapy ?

Lithotherapy is a therapeutic method of holistic care that helps to heal certain physical and emotional ailments through the use of stones and crystals. Although this method is not scientifically recognised, many testimonies illustrate the benefits of these stones. We started from the universal principle that everything in the universe has a specific energy that vibrates at different frequencies. Each individual has an energy that vibrates at a certain frequency, as does each living being (plant and animal) and each mineral. Precious and semi-precious stones, which are minerals that come from rocks, also have their own vibration and energy that offers specific benefits to each of them. If you want to know more about lithotherapy and how to choose your stone, see our previous article: Lithotherapy : Meaning and Benefits of Stones and how to choose them?
