In crystal healing it is believed that crystal have an energy field around them that interact with other energy around them. Crystals are believed to have energy on a molecular level that is synchronized with in itself, and can remain stable around negative energy. Crystal energy can help balance the energy the human body has by synchronizing with it and giving the human body harmony in balance. Crystal energy is like water ripple-like waves that flow with a rhythmic pulse and spread harmony around it. The main principle in crystal healing is that everything is made out of energy, and life forms like humans conduct energy like a complex electrochemical system. Crystal healing is believed to work in many ways through their energy vibrations, like through sound through use of crystal singing bowls, and through touch, and also through just being nearby without touching any crystals. The energy spreads like a wave, and effects nearby people, and anything else radiating energy. Quantum Physics shows energy flow in little particles, but the form of a wave, and that is in the same believe of how crystals spread their energy (Hall).
Through experience, I?ve found that to heal is very different than to be cured. Cure implies a successful outcome and the eradication of disease from the body. Healing on the other hand is born out of self discovery and examination. It is the recovery of the whole self from the trauma of disease. It is my job as a volunteer to aide patients during this laborious journey as much as possible and I believe the first step is to help them change the way they perceive the situation and provide them with inspiration.

Unlikely, Buddhism and Shintoism view their critical components of healing from different perspective than Christianity. According to Buddhist, their healing takes place by use of blessed pills, blessed water and herbal medicine that prepared with extensive prayers and mantras by their spiritual leader known as Rimpoche. As part of the healing Buddhists also use a method called visualization. For example, visualization of a ball of white light above oneself who is ill, which directs the image of white lights spreading through one’s body will dissolve away all sickness and problems. Some other components of healing in Buddhism includes use of Buddha figures in imagination while perform visualization; meditation by breath in and breath out;

Chakra boosters, Holistic Healing, and Reiki infinite healer do a great job of adding visuals within the piece.

A healing hospital is a healing community providing radical loving care (Journal of Sacred Work, 2009) in a safe environment that focuses on human interaction, interpersonal caring and enhancing the wellbeing of patients, caregivers, and all other members of the healing community. While a healing hospital is, of course, dedicated to providing excellent medical care to its patients (Mercy Gilbert Medical Center, 2012), it is also dedicated to integrating work design and technology (Mercy Gilbert Medical Center, 2012), and ultimately to the overall wellness of every healing community member. Using physical healing, education and supportive human interaction, this care model seeks healing on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels for everyone involved in the process (Zarren, n.d., pp. 1-2). The success of this model requires the cooperation of every
