New age healing is a form of alternative healing therapy that believes in an all-pervading force that human beings should ideally be in tune with. Illness occurs when we fall out of sync with this force. This form of healing relies heavily on metaphysical properties that it attributes to minerals and crystals. New age healers claim that crystals and minerals can help to realign the body’s spiritual, physical, and emotional energies with a universal force and this helps the body to combat disease of the body and mind. New age healing also includes making use of color therapy, reading auras, astral travel, etc.
