Dr Tony Morse, Advanced Crystal Healer

Dr Tony Morse is a practising Consultant, specialising in Renewable Energy and Environmental Sciences. As a qualified Geologist he studied the subjects of crystals, rocks, and dowsing. This study awakened Dr Tony to the unseen energies involved in the earth – environment system. He was able to develop this understanding into a novel healing practice that focuses on Chakra Energy Balancing, using the tools that nature has provided us with.

A session with Dr Tony involves him using a crystal pendulum to detect the energy “flow” in the body, with a focus on the 7 main Chakra centres. Individuals can see the response of the pendulum over the body as it identifies how the persons energy is interacting inside / outside (their Aura). Once the pendulum identifies an energy block, crystal and sound frequencies are then used to return balance back to the person. It is a “hands off” therapy session.
