I have a friend who suffers badly from Sciatica and I wanted to buy him some tumbled stones to help him. Do you have any suggestions? Also is it better that he place the stones directly to the spot, or should he just carry them?
Thanks so much,
There are three crystals specifically for Sciatica that may bring your friend some relief:
Malachite helps to ease the pain and release some of the tension in the body.
Blue Sapphire can help to soothe the nerves that are causing the pain.
Watermelon Tourmaline can also help to ease tension in the back and legs, as well as soothe the Sciatic nerve itself.
There are other crystals that are very useful for pain in general. These would include:
As for using the stones, try both and see which brings more relief. He may want to carry the stones during the day and then lay the stones on the affected area when he gets home. He could also make a small healing grid under his bed so that healing can take place while he is at rest. If he is not familiar with crystal healing grids, here are two articles that may be helpful.

Here is an article on back issues that I found in our HealingCrystals.com archives that may be of assistance as well.
It may take a bit to find the right placement and combination of stones, but I have no doubt that you will be helping your friend through the process. I am very sure he is extremely grateful for your support.
