  • About This Course

    The concept of massage therapy using stones has been used in many different cultures for many years.Tribal Healers and Village wise women used rocks from the river beds and warmed them either in hot coals or hot water.  By placing the hot stones on cloth on the body and arranging them along the energy points of the body, this would help to relax the muscles and reduce pain or discomfort, and therefore support the healing process.

    The placing of the stones is often followed by a holistic massage which proves to result in a deeper and more intense treatment as the heat penetrates the body and relaxes the muscles and the cold stones stimulate the neural pathways and circulatory system.

    This 10 lesson hot stone massage course shows the student the history of hot stone massage to the modern day development and use of hot stone massage techniques and associated therapies. The course focuses upon practical massage therapy techniques that can be learned and practised by the student, either as a stand alone therapy in its own right or as part of a practicing holistic therapist’s repertoire of effective techniques.

    The course shows the student how hot stone  techniques can be incorporated into holistic therapeutic  practice which will be  of great value to practitioners of both the body working therapies and also of pure holistic treatments.

    Who should take this course?

    The course is completely stand alone and is aimed at students who wish to obtain competence and experience in a practical hands-on therapy.

    No previous experience is required as the course covers the appropriate basics, but students of holistic massage will find that this course adds another dimension to their treatments.Practitioners of other therapies will find the course very useful as it adds another popular treatment technique to their existing practise.

The written report I received after the ...

Great informative course

I have done 3 courses now, 2 on dog grooming and one on human anatomy. All have been at my own speed. The modules allow me to pick it up and do when i have a spare 40 minutes. The end of module questions give me the revision i need to make sure it sunk in. I’m pleased with what I have achieved on these courses and would recommend them.
