Reasons to train with ACHO, a nationally approved representative body for Crystal Healing
Crystal healing on self and family is fun for everyone, there are an abundance of books on the marketplace and for many people this may be just what they want. For those who wish to learn more then professional training courses are available.
In 1988 an association, ACHO, was formed by a group of crystal healing schools to promote training and competence in crystal healing therapy. ACHO stands for the Affiliation of Crystal Healing Organisations. ACHO schools form the majority of The Crystal Therapy Council (CTC) which is the lead body for Crystal Healing within the General Regulatory Council for Complementary Therapies (GRCCT).
Choosing to train with an ACHO member school gives you the assurance that there is an agreed core curriculum and agreed standards and policies which we all abide by. ACHO schools offers some of the leading teachers and authors in the UK so that students are presented with a wealth of knowledge around crystals, their origins and their healing applications.The course content is both practical and theoretical.
Some schools teach the ACHO Core Curriculum in the first year, offering the opportunity to obtain a Certificate following the successful completion of Year 1 and a Diploma after Year 2. Students with their Year 1 Certificate in Crystal Healing Therapy can obtain insurance and practice as a therapist whilst they continue their training in Year 2.
People are often amazed to discover how much there is to learn about the safe use and handling of crystals and the plethora of techniques that are available, but in addition to that ACHO courses incorporate teaching about the art of healing in a comprehensive way. This accommodates everyone, those with some previous experience and those with none.
Three of the ACHO schools are also members of the Open College Network and this enables students to have their course work accredited and validated through a national educational body (NOCN). Some ACHO schools offer additional post-graduate training.
Crystal Healing Therapy is fun, grounding and offers something special for everyone.
