Joachim Goebel; even in early childhood, was always irresistibly drawn to the water element. Playful activities with water deepened into natural curiosity in his youth, and he became increasingly interested in the study of this natural phenomenon. His interest in healing grew steadily at the same time. Joachim Goebel studied medicine and then dedicated himself, in parallel, to Ayurvedic studies and various different natural healing processes. In this connection he recognized water as the elixir of life in this, our mortal state, and he devoted himself with even greater commitment to the holistic research of water. In 1997, he was introduced to the subject of crystal healing. Further inspired by the teachings of the medieval naturalist Hildegard von Bingen, Joachim Goebel began his ‘water and gem’ research in 1998. At the time, gem water was largely unheard of, so he began with initial examinations and trials. They were so successful that the subject of gem water became the focus of his daily professional activities. As a lecturer in crystal healing he gives talks, seminars and training on the subject of gem water and also offers personal consultations.
