Hot Stone Massage is a deeply relaxing treatment that effectively releases stress and tension in the body. The heat of the basalt stones encourages the muscles to release quicker than traditional massage and is particularly beneficial for muscular aches and pains, insomnia, back pain, stress, tension and depression. In addition the effectiveness of this wonderful therapy reduces the strain to your hands.
During this one day intensive course we will cover:
- Contraindications of treatment
- Preparation for Hot Stone Massage
- Giving and receiving a Hot Stone Massage
- Benefits of treatment
- Safe use of Hot Stone heaters
- Appropriate health & safety requirements
- What type of hot stones and stone heaters you will need & where to buy them

This will be a long but very enjoyable day during which you will have ample time to practice your new skills - giving & receiving a Full Body Massage. A practitioner’s certificate will be issued upon demonstration of a competent hot stone massage.
