The Ancient Classical Texts of Chinese Medicine stressed the importance of using gems & stones for healing treatments. Stones & gems were said to have medicinal properties. Stones were used to make elixirs & tinctures for consumption, candies to suck on, as well as numerous forms of creams, powders, & the liking, used as topicals. Additionally, stones were used to make needles, later becoming metal. In acupuncture & other TCM modalities, the application of stones is used on acupuncture points & meridian trajectories, noted specifically to treat the most difficult of diseases.


Therapeutic stones, crystals & minerals may be worn, carried or ingested as an elixir. They can also be used to enhance the effects of treatments like acupuncture or acupressure.

Our ancestors understood the intrinsic & hidden potential of stones & crystals. At SHAIOM, stones & crystals are often incorporated in our treatments. Further, we offer jewelry design by Gilles Obermayer, composed for individual patients. Ask about his Five Elements jewelry collection if you are interested.
