Hot stone massage training

What topics are covered by the course?

On our Hot Stone Massage course you will learn a form of Swedish Massage that incorporates the use of both hot and cold Basalt Lava stones. This massage works much deeper into the tissue than a conventional massage treatment and can stimulate the circulation and cell function of your clients, promoting the rate of tissue repair and stimulating the metabolism by 10-15%. As well as the physical benefits of this treatment, the spiritual side of stone massage plays an important part for many therapists and clients. You will learn how to use stone massage to re-balance the energy between the body's chakras, thus eliminating negative energy. Overall physical relaxation and mental balance will be felt, which is why this treatment has become a staple part of many salon's treatment menu.
