This course is structured over one day and runs from 10am – 4pm. We ask students to arrive at 9.45am to ensure a prompt start. You will learn the theory of the treatment firstly, and spend the majority of the day practising your practical skills, with a short break for lunch. You will give and receive treatments as part of this course.
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. Following the course, you will be able to provide this deep massage working as a massage therapist from home and mobile.
