Does Electronic Gem Therapy Really Work?

Electronic Gem Therapy Low-voltage Lamps

With its roots dating back to Ayurvedic medicine, electronic gem therapy is a type of alternative medicine that puts its faith in the alleged healing properties of precious gems.

The idea behind this therapy, originated by British scientist Dr Jon Whale, is that these gems are capable of inducing energy into tissues that are toxic or diseased, thus bringing relief to either chronic or acute conditions.

The gems are put inside a special type of chamber, which is attached to low-voltage lamps. When the light shines through the gems, they resonate toward areas of the body that can benefit from healing, influencing the behaviour of cells.

Different types of precious gems are used, and often a combination of gems – up to 20 or more – are used at any given time, for maximum benefit. Practitioners choose ones that are specially capable of treating certain conditions, and the entire treatment is completely painless and non-invasive.

Anatomy of a Treatment

Electronic gem therapy is a completely relaxing therapy for the individual being treated. Treatment sessions usually last about an hour and a half, during which time the patient is either reclining or sitting down.

The special low-voltage lamps are directed toward the parts of the body that need treatment, shining on that part of the body. Usually, the individual being treated is completely clothed.

For example, if you suffer from eczema then a lamp would be directed toward your liver. That's because it is thought that the cause of this chronic skin condition is often a liver that is over-active.

Some people feel an improvement almost immediately; more chronic conditions require further sessions. Because the lamps are low-voltage, this treatment is even suitable for small children and babies.

Sometimes, the practitioner concentrates on acupressure, or meridian points, as placed in which to shine the gems. This is claimed to be done in order to balance a person's energy levels better, and revitalise their chakras.

Gem Selection

When having your treatment, your practitioner may suggest certain types of gems, which are thought to work well to alleviate certain conditions. Some of the gems used may be:

  • Green (emerald and blue sapphire): works well to produce a sedative or tranquillising, calming effect.
  • Orange (diamonds and carelians): works as an anti-depressant and stimulant.
  • Red (rubies and diamonds): energising and invigorating, reduces vasoconstriction and helps circulation.
  • Violet (blue sapphires): great as a sedative for trauma, relaxes the nerves.

Conditions Treated

Electronic gem therapy is thought to help alleviate some specific conditions in particular, which include:

  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Back pain and other chronic pain
  • Skin problems like eczema and psoriasis
  • Arthritis
  • Mood disorders
If you fancy this treatment yourself, make sure you only visit an accredited practitioner who has a licence to use safe, medically approved equipment.

Although it may sound similar, practitioners of this type of alternative therapy warn people who are investigating it for themselves not to confuse it with light, crystal or colour therapy, which are quite different in the way they work upon the internal parts of the body.

Electronic gem therapy may sound like some New Age hogwash, but many people have reported great benefits after having this treatment. As it is completely non-invasive, the worst it can do is have no effect. And again, a certain degree of faith may be required for it to work at all.
