Hot stone therapy uses heated-stone placement to relax and heat the body, allowing the therapist to work deeper into the muscles to relieve tension. Using a range of hot volcanic basalt stones, you will learn how to provide a deeply relaxing treatment which works on a mental, physical and spiritual level for your clients. The combination of heat and deep pressure results in relief of muscular tension, with minimal effort from the therapist, and this consequently can diffuse aches and pains. You will learn the important health, safety and consultation considerations to ensure you are able to deliver industry standard treatments that meet the specific therapeutic needs of a wide range of individuals.
