A full-color guide to crystal massage for healing, energy balance, and stress release in the physical, emotional, and energetic bodies

• Illustrates full-body massage techniques with crystal wands, crystal spheres, polished stones, and amber

• Details the healing properties of more than 50 crystals and gemstones and how to select the proper one for a specific condition

• Explains how to cleanse and recharge crystal, gemstone, and amber after each massage so energies are not transferred from one person to another

In this full-color illustrated guide, Michael Gienger, along with contributors Hildegard Weiss and Ursula Dombrowksy, details the energetics and healing properties of more than 50 crystals and gemstones for use in massage. The book explains how to select the proper crystal or stone to aid healing of a specific condition as well as for relaxation and stress release. It illustrates specific massage techniques with crystal wands, crystal spheres, and polished stones that best utilize the crystal or stone’s properties and shows how to perform a full-body massage that works on several levels--physical, ethereal, mental, and spiritual--depending on how the crystals are applied.

Explaining how crystals absorb energy and information during a massage, the guide shows how to cleanse and recharge their energetic fields so energies are not transferred from one person to another. It also details how to rebalance and replenish your own energy after giving a massage.

The book also includes a detailed chapter on the harmonizing effects of amber massage, complete with a step-by-step illustrated massage sequence. Amber’s unique electromagnetic vibrations make it especially conducive to creating homeostasis in the body and thus a beneficial addition to any crystal or stone massage practice.

With this complete illustrated guide, anyone can enhance their massage practice or self-healing through the powerful effects of crystals, gemstones, and amber.

Michael Gienger (1964-2014) was one of Europe’s most respected experts on crystals and their uses, a field in which he had been active since 1988. He started collecting minerals in 1972, and in 1985 a successful self-treatment with healing crystals inspired him to pursue further training as an alternative healing practitioner. He was trained in shiatsu and completed a two-year apprentice in shamanic healing. He went on to author more than 20 publications, a number of which have become standard works in their field and have been translated into 11 languages.

Crystal and Stone Massage is the standard work in the field of gentle massage with precious stones. The author is outstanding in his ability to convey the energetic aspects of massage and the importance of touch. Six different massage techniques are illustrated in detail, from intuitive massages to very complex reflexology. . . . Recommended for both professional massage therapists as well as the layperson.”
