Welcome to the crystal therapy online course

This is a course that has been specifically designed to allow therapists interested in the theory and practice of crystal therapy, to explore these concepts.

You will learn about cleansing, energising and resting crystals, crystal placement and dowsing. You will also learn about auras, chakra balancing, visualisation, breathing and how you could incorporate meditation into your treatments.

Although Crystal Therapy lacks scientific validation, you will learn how to provide a safe and professional service for clients.

All the content is available to study straight from this portal, anytime, and you can revisit the content whenever you want, even once completed. There will be a few downloadable documents too for you to help with progressing your therapy with your clients, so grab a pen and notepad and begin your journey.

This course is accredited with IICT (International Institute for Complementary Therapists), The CMA (Complementary Medical Association), IPHM & IPTI, and on completion of the course and submission of your case studies, you will be awarded an accredited Holistic Therapies Training Diploma.

Throughout some of the modules, you will come across this image, where it will ask you to complete a task.

This is a good practice task to get your business working in an optimal professional way! You do not need to send it to us, but are there to give you some tips and ways to improve on your working practices and to prepare you for completing your case studies.
