ACHO (the association) was formed in 1988 by a group of crystal healing organisations to promote training and competence in crystal healing therapy and to act as a nationally recognised representative body for crystal healing. ACHO schools form the largest contingent within the Crystal Therapy Council (CTC), which is a member of the General Regulatory Council for Complementary Therapies (GRCCT).
ACHO maintains a Practitioner Register of qualified crystal healers. Listed practitioners must have completed either an accredited ACHO/CTC Certificate course of at least 90 hours long (tutor present) or a full ACHO/CTC Diploma course which must be at least 180 hours long (tutor present).
Correspondence courses and short courses are not eligible for inclusion on the Practitioner Register.
Please view the ACHO Courses Diary for ACHO course dates and venues.
