Hot Stone Massage

Hot Stone Massage

Hot Stone Massage

A must for all massage therapists who want to offer clients a wonderfully relaxing, warming deep massage

The ancient healing of a hot stone massage has been used for thousands of years across the globe by healers, Tibetan monks and native American indians to name a few. It involves the application of heated basalt stones of varying sizes to key points on the body, giving a deep massage and creating sensations of comfort and warmth. The direct heat relaxes the muscles, allowing manipulation of a greater intensity than with a regular massage while preventing tiring and injury to you. Some say one stroke of a stone is equivalent to eight of the hand, and many clients that try it never go back to traditional massage.

What practical skills will you learn?

To ensure you feel really confident on completion of this course, you will learn a step by step treatment procedure which will allow you to focus on your client's specific areas of tension while warming and soothing the muscles. You will also become competent in preparing your room, equipment and client ready for their treatment.
