Holistic Training Courses
Published on 16 March, 2012 | Crystal Healing
Crystals have been used for healing since ancient times by many different cultures It is a holistic therapy, which means that the focus is on the individual as a whole, rather than on physical symptoms alone. The aim of this therapy is to restore wholeness, balance and health on levels of emotions, mind, spirit as well as the physical body. This is why crystal healing is considered complementary to allopathic medicine and not an alternative. Crystal Healing often involves some form of change in a client’s overall way of being. It may be through a relief of stress and tensions, through revitalisation, relaxation or establishing a greater amount of peace and harmony. Crystal Healing is also helpful in complementing most forms of allopathic medical practice. Apart from promoting ‘wellness’ and helping to prevent physical illness, it can be of use in the following circumstances:
- Both acute and chronic conditions
- Stress related conditions
- States of anxiety
- Pre-operative care
- Post-operative healing
- Care of the terminally ill
- Activate and support the natural self-healing processes within the individual client
- support the recovery of existing symptoms.
How does Crystal Healing work?
Crystal Healers are not permitted or trained to diagnose physical ailments. They do however assess the condition of the bio-magnetic field of a client before choosing appropriate crystals to help bring it back into balance and harmony. Since the state of the bio-magnetic field relates to and influences the state of the physical body, this process will help activate, support and often accelerate the natural self-healing processes. It may be of interest to note that this field, also known as the electro magnetic field or aura, has been discussed and contemplated within the realm of healing and philosophy for thousands of years. It is only fairly recently that science has proven that it must exist around every physical body and organism, thereby helping, amongst other, to validate crystal healing.
What to expect during a healing session from a client’s point of view
You will be asked to fill in a form with your details, the name of your GP or specialist and have a brief chat concerning your reasons for seeking healing. The healer will then ask you to either sit on a chair or lay down (fully clothed) on a massage couch, in which case you will be asked to remove your shoes. He/she will then make sure that you are relaxed and comfortable and may place a few small crystals on or around you and channel healing. You may experience a feeling of deep relaxation, sometimes a little warmth or coolness during the session. Most treatments take approximately one hour. In a hospital, the client would remain in bed and will not need to fill in a form.
