About this Course
Hot Stone Massage
Arguably one of the most popular therapies around today, Hot Stone Massage is not only extremely relaxing and loved by clients, it is very effective due to the heat introduced to tense muscles but also much less strain on your hands too – without compromising effectiveness – win win really! And now our course includes cold stones too
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
- When & How to use cold stones
- Caring for your stones and equipment
- Providing client after care advice
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.
Please note: you will not be able to receive treatment on the training day if you are pregnant or have a medical condition that causes peripheral neuropathy (loss of sensation in hands or feet). Please make us aware at the time of booking if this applies to you.
