    Hot Stone Massage has become an increasingly popular pick at day spas and massage centers due to the well-known feeling of deep relaxation it provides. But did you know that hot stone massage can be very effective treatment for pain management?

    Hot stone massage combines thermotherapy with massage techniques to provide an effective healing treatment. The direct placement of heat on a particular area increases local blood and lymph circulation and relaxes muscle tissue. The deep tissue strokes we do with the stones assists in breaking down adhesions and scar tissue that result in more long term benefits. Energetically heat stimulates movement and assists in removing the stagnation that can lead to pain and other imbalances in the body. The combination of thermotherapy and deep tissue strokes results in a treatment that will help flush toxins from the body, promote the flow energy, decrease musculoskeletal pain and create a deep sense of relaxation.

    In this class, students will start by learning the myriad benefits of hot stone massage, as well as how to determine who is eligible for the treatment. The course is structured into a step-by-step demonstration and practice of a full body hot stone massage, with hands-on practice of the basic strokes and deep tissue techniques at each step, and will culminate with students performing a full body treatment.

    Combining hot stone protocols with a full body massage provides a very healing and effective experience with long-lasting benefits to your clients.
