and her new book




Crystal Healing is an advanced healing modality that works directly with the light and electromagnetic energy of the crystals and stones to assist in balancing all aspects of our being.  The crystal's energy infusion promotes balance and alignment, clearing of blocked energies, elevating of mental awareness, and allowing  entry into the subtle dimensions of consciousness, facilitating healing on all levels: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

How does Crystal Healing work?

 Specific stones are placed upon the chakras or spiritual energy centers of our bodies to infuse the aura with the purest light reflecting off the stones into our bodies.   

Using breathing exercises to increase the prana/vital energy in the body, one is guided to a deep state of relaxation. The  brain waves  can quickly reach the alpha frequency which feels as a concentrated  deep meditative state of mind - lucid but yet dreamy.   

 Crystal Healing Therapeutics are applied to facilitate the client to access hidden or subconscious energies as the memory veils can be  lifted. 

The altered state of consciousness that the crystals produce  can open  up portals and hidden chambers where one  can connect to their  higher self.
In this place of stillness and shifted perspective, sudden breakthroughs, deep serenity and clarity and  new insights  and answers can be reached.

In this altered state of consciousness,   childhood traumas, deep introjected and forgotten traumas, even  past lives can be awaken from deep memory banks and brought up to the conscious mind for revaluation, understanding, healing, and  possible transformation.  Additionally, a deep  body/mind/spirit connection can occur and one's own ability to heal itself can be activated.

Incorporating Crystal Healing and Crystal layouts in one's life have proven over time to make a huge difference in one's well being.
The ability to learn how to use the innate light and energy of the crystals to help to  heal diverse aspects on oneself is a very precious gift.

      This course was a life changer for me. Struggling with PTSD for years, I found daily life challenging. Discovering Katrina Raphaell's Crystal  books led me to Tanize and her teachings in 2008, marking the start of my journey with crystals.  Now crystals are an integral part of my life and I do not dwell in the past anymore.  Tanize's courses are exceptional; her expertise  and compassionate teaching style have brought lasting benefits to my life.    Li Chen - VA


 This course changed my life.  I learned so much about crystals and myself. Tanize is a wonderful teacher, very skilled and knowledgeable with crystal healing and very thorough in passing on these gifts to her students. I would strongly encourage anyone who feels drawn to crystals and wants to learn more about their use in healing to take Tanize's classes.  She is a very special lady, crystal healer and teacher.      Melissa B -  Australia

I love the courses I took with Tanize.  She is absolutely the best teacher I had in the field of crystal healing.  I took a few other courses while trying to learn and would like to state that this is the best course  I ever took.  So much knowledge, experience and love.  She is attentive, and pass on the information in a way that makes so much sense. Best of all she is so easy to talk to, very down to earth.   I would also strongly  recommend to have a private session with her.  It changed me in a way I would have never expected and my life is so much better since.

A very  comprehensive course in crystal healing. I learned so much form Tanize. She has a beautiful way of sharing and presenting the information and it is so loving and graceful.   A big plus is  the fact that there are  practices during the course. I learned a lot from experiencing  with the layouts  and techniques she teaches and we practice.  So many courses are just theoretical,  I loved I was able to learn the theory and practice and feel the energy in my body and witness the experience of others in the course as well.      Mark G -  Colorado
