Gemstones for healing/helping headaches and neck pain

Gemstones for healing/helping  headaches and neck pain

The first stone that comes to mind is Aquamarine.
A well-known Throat Chakra stone, Aquamarine carries a soothing energy that can ease stress and tension. Aquamarine clears the Throat Chakra, which can become blocked when you are prohibited from speaking your truth. Aquamarine aligns the chakras and subtle bodies, and is said to repel dark energies.

A stone that would be able to do double duty for your neck and head is Lapis Lazuli. Primarily known as a Throat
Chakra stone, Lapis Lazuli also works with the Third-Eye Chakra. Lapis Lazuli balances and stimulates the Throat Chakra, which may help to reduce your neck pain, but it can also open the Third-Eye Chakra, making it quite helpful for relief from headaches. Lapis Lazuli is also known to bring peace and spiritual experiences.

Clear Quartz. Known for clearing the chakras and helping the flow of energy through the nadis, Clear Quartz can be placed on any area of the body to clear away energy
blockages, which has effectively reduced pain in my own experience. Due to it's properties of amplification, Clear Quartz can be programmed for healing as well.

My favorite stone for general pain relief and overall healing is Amethyst is also a great crystal for pain relief. A highly cleansing stone, Amethyst can remove energetic debris from the nadis, which are channels for energy to flow through
the body and in between the chakras. Amethyst is a highly spiritual and protective crystal that also provides emotional support. Working with the Throat and Crown Chakras, Amethyst is another crystal that might facilitate the healing of both of the concerns you mentioned in your question.

Some additional stones that are good for headaches are Angelite, Optical Calcite, Rose Quartz, Sugilite, Turquoise, Blue Lace Agate, Amber, Emerald, Hematite, Citrine & Moonstone.   Chrysoprase is a stone that is often used for neck strains.
The crystal used to provide relief from a headache depends on the cause of the headache.

A tension headache can be relieved by placing amethyst, amber or turquoise on or around the head. Lapis lazuli can also be used and has been employed for centuries to help treat migraines. Amethyst can be placed in a healing layout on and around the head to help relieve symptoms.

Another common cause of headaches in an imbalance between head energy and the solar plexus chakra usually brought about by stress or unsuitable food. If you suspect stress to be the cause of your headache or if you have a headache with an upset stomach use a stone that helps to balance the solar plexus such as citrine or moonstone.

Amethyst Head Grid (to soothe headaches)
This healing pattern helps to free up the blocked energies that can cause a headache and so reduce the pain.
What you need
You will need 4 amethyst points or tumble stones.
Crystal Layout
Lie down and place an amethyst in the center of the forehead on the brow chakra, pointing upwards. Place two more amethysts, again pointing upwards, at either side of the base of the neck just above the collarbones. An optional fourth amethyst can be placed above the top of the head, pointing towards the head. Relax in this position.

Choker necklaces of any of these stones will help greatly in chronic neck and head pain.
Two of my favorite necklaces to wear is Amethyst and crystal quartz. For my chronic neck pain causing severe migraines.
Different crystals/gemstone work better for some then others. As each person has different energy so do the gemstones.  Experiment with a few of these gemstones to see which works best for you .
