What is Crystal Healing?

Crystal healing is a type of alternative therapy that involves using gemstones to bring balance to an individual’s life and mind.

Crystals are said to have a stable and unchanging energy pattern, each with a unique frequency and energy field, or resonance that gives them special properties. As a result, they act like tuning forks helping bring harmony to the very unstable energy field of the human body when needed.

What 3rd level courses are available?

Universities and colleges in Ireland are offering Crystal Healing courses in the following subject areas:

  • Diploma in Crystal Healing – Learn more about crystal healing and its importance and its history. You will be trained on how to use crystal healing to open up chakras and cleanse auras.

Studying Crystal Healing in college

Many Crystal Healing courses take place over a few weeks to 1 year depending on the course and modules selected. There are also part-time courses and night courses available so you can be sure to fit in your studies no matter what your schedule is like.

Courses will cover theory work through lectures, assignments, tutorials, and taught modules. Assessments will take place continuously with written examinations and practical assignments combined to achieve a qualification.

You could also consider work experience or a work shadow in the industry. Try to gain work experience in a spa or clinic by contacting Crystal Healers in your local area and ask to shadow them during patient consultations. Relevant work experience is a good way of demonstrating a genuine interest in the field and is regarded favorably by employers. 

Work Experience will not only allow you to obtain a deeper knowledge and understanding of the industry, but it will also give you a chance to do some essential networking with other industry professionals and gain valuable contacts for the future.

Career options

After completing a course in Crystal Healing you will be able to get started in a career that uses specific knowledge of Crystals and their properties and uses.

As a Crystal Healer, you’ll take a holistic approach to treat patients, looking at the underlying causes of the illness and not just the symptoms, and will prescribe crystals to be used alongside other treatments and medicines where necessary.

Most Crystal Healers are self-employed and you’re most likely to set up your practice or work out of a complementary health clinic or spa-type environment, working as part of a team with other alternative health practitioners. These can include acupuncturists, shiatsu practitioners, and aromatherapists.

Working hours will depend on whether you are self-employed, employed by a company with set business hours, or if you are contracted to various facilities or companies. The hours are usually full-time, Monday to Friday, although you may need to be flexible to suit your clients’ needs. For example, you may choose to work some evenings or weekends. You can work either full or part-time.

What is a crystal healing session?

In a standard session, crystal healers will lay the crystals along the key chakra line of the body to aid in balancing the energy field. The chakra – or energy points – in your hands, as well as the third eye, the point between the eyebrows, are the most effective when starting therapy with a beginner because the sensations, such as a buzz or heaviness, are particularly effective and you are less likely to attribute them to a placebo effect.
