Gem Stone & Crystal Massage
Through a written manual, photographs, demonstrations, lectures, hands on practice, and class discussions you will discover how to safely and respectfully use crystals and gem stones. This course was originally named “Shaman Stones” but NCBTMB chose to disallow the term ‘shaman’ in course titles. What a shame! Other indigenous modalities carry the traditional names of their founders. Names such as Reiki, Chakra Balancing, and Acupressure relate to the origins of the modality. The Native American term of Shaman is not recognized and this is one of the few indigenous wellness methods from the First Nation People!
In the world of the Shaman all work with the ‘Not Cold Ice Stone’, (more commonly known as Crystal), is taken very seriously. This course will dispel many myths about Crystal Healing. New Age philosophies and comparisons are discussed in class. While respect for the East Indian methods of working with the Chakra system is acknowledged, none of that work is practiced in this Native American modality. Discover the North American method of working with the ‘Center of Life’, ‘The Hoop of Life’, the ‘Luminous Body’ and the ‘Body as an Altar’.
Using hot and cold stone massage techniques with gem stones and crystals adds a new dimension to working with crystals. Learning a few simple geological reasons as to why your stones work so well with alternating temperatures allows you to share a more realistic explanation with your client about how this method of wellness works. Yes there is magic in the stones you use, but a lot of it has been taught with new age language that creates doubt or suspicion in the mind of some clients. Scientific explanations are taught from a variety of research projects and some New Age babble is discredited. Be prepared to open your mind to the blunt realities expressed in this course.
As an example of the different perspectives shared in this class, read this statement by the course author, Jenny Ray:
“If it took Creator billions of years to make a Crystal exactly as He wanted it, what can a simple human do to ‘program’ it? Are we arrogant enough to believe that we can permanently change the vibration of a Crystal by spinning a pendulum over it for a few seconds when Creator spent billions of years developing its perfection with His intention? Wouldn’t it be better to know how to match the client with the stone Creator made for them?”
If the student is prepared to learn valuable and practical information about the safe, and effective ways to offer Crystal and Gem stone massage, this is the class for them.
