Hot Stone Massage Course Overview

Hot Stone Massage, an extremely popular therapy that originated in the US, and now just as popular in the UK and Europe. The technique uses warm basalt stones to warm the muscles, which allow a much deeper effect than a conventional massage, with minimum effort from the therapist. It has been said that one stroke of a stone is equivalent to ten of the hand.

This treatment can add an exciting new dimension to your massage business and is so popular with clients that many who have tried it never go back to traditional massage. It is also an extremely profitable service, charging on average up to 25- 50% more than regular massage treatments. This course is designed to enable qualified massage therapists to add Hot Stone massage as a highly marketable service to their treatment menus.

This therapy has become one of the most popular over the last ten years. Working in harmony with massage, this technique places the warm stones on the client’s body and also in the therapist’s hands.

The heat gently penetrates the skin and muscles, helping the client to relax and de-stress in double quick time. This is one of our most popular courses that therapists wish to train in as their clients seem to love it! It also has the added benefit of protecting your hands whilst working, saving you from RSI and your clients get a nice firm massage without any strain to yourself.
