hot stone massage training course

Who is the course suitable for?

This massage course is perfect for therapists who wish to expand their holistic massage skills and add this “must-have” treatment to their list of therapies. It is extremely popular with clients and it is usually priced at a significantly higher level than massage alone, making it a very lucrative treatment to offer. Students must have a qualification in Anatomy & Physiology prior to enrolling - previous massage experience is helpful but not essential, so practitioner qualified in other holistic disciplines are welcome.

This exciting one day intensive course covers lots of interesting theory about Yin and Yang, Chakras, the Five Elements and Kneipp Theory. This will give you a brief grounding in the way that stone therapy works on the energy systems of the whole body. The course also looks at the body meridian systems and how the massage assists with total health and well being. This course also covers the client consultation process, aftercare and product selection, plus information on Insurance, Data Protection and the relevant anatomy.

The massage routine is in several parts and teaches you how to work the stones with confidence to give your clients a wonderful holistic experience.

How long are the treatments and how much can I charge?

A Hot Stones Massage treatment usually lasts 50 minutes and would be a one hour treatment. However, many therapists offer Hot Stones as a 90 minute treatment to really give the client an extra-special treat. Tasters can also be offered by using the hot stones to give a back or shoulder massage and so add value to other massage treatments. It should be priced at your usual hourly massage rate which may vary between £30 and £75 per hour, depending on the area in which you practice.

Do I need to purchase anything in advance and what equipment do I need to practice?

The massage routine has also been specially developed to use the minimum number of stones for the maximum effect. This means that your investment in purchasing stones is less and the amount of cleansing and weight to carry around is less! The effect of the massage and the client experience is still top quality. All the items you use on the course will be provided for you. Details of the products and equipment you need to practice will be covered in detail on the course. We advise you not to invest in anything before you come along.

What are the benefits to my clients?

Stone therapy, as with all massage, has physiological effects on the mind, body and spirit as the state of deep relaxation encourages rejuvenation of the whole being. The warmth also encourages very deep relaxation, and has a calming effect on the client's body and mind.
