Traditional Worry stones originated in Ancient Greece where locals would search for small rocks that had been worn smooth by the sea.
Over the years worry stones have become known as ‘pocket tranquilisers’ because of their therapeutic benefits.
Through a process called acupressure, rubbing the stones between our fingers or in our palms stimulates the numerous nerve endings. These points called pressure points connect to meridians within our bodies which stimulate aspects of the brain. This allows the release of endorphins, creating a naturally calming effect.
Hold this beautiful natural stone heart between your index finger and thumb, spend several minutes focusing your senses onto the stone so that it encourages peace and relaxed feeling.

Western society is embracing a raft of alternative therapies, one of which is the use of crystals. Worry stones are at the fore of this trend. The technique goes back to ancient and religious times where the meditative process of rubbing soft stones between fingers helped to calm the mind.
To use your worry stone:
Place your thumb on the stone and massage it. This action is somewhat trance like and can act as a catalyst shifting your attention from worry to something calm, meditative and relaxing.
For those of you who dabble in psychology, using a worry stone is akin to a self-managed distraction therapy. Shifting your focus from a negative into a positive. This is why we love our worry stones so much. Even if you don’t subscribe to the benefits of using crystals (woo-woo free zone), you can still harness the power away from something that is stressful into something very peaceful. We love peace. We crave peace and we shall have peace god damn it!
