Hot Stone Massage Diploma Course

An accredited and fully insurable one day course

The heat of the stones gently penetrates the skin and muscles, helping the client to relax and de-stress, whilst the cold stones provide effective repair to damaged tissues, alleviate swelling and assist with inflammation.

Working with hot stones allows the therapist to work at a much deeper musculature depth, quicker and without applying undue stress to the client or the therapist.

You will learn a full body hot stone massage, how to incorporate cold stones into the treatment and the effects of using hot and cold stones alternately to produce vasodilation to help with blood pressure.

This is a one day Hot Stone Massage Course, incorporating the use of Cryotherapy (cold stones).
On this course you will learn:

  • The history, concept and development of hot stone massage
  • A full body hot stone massage treatment
  • How to incorporate the use of cold stones into a treatment and how to give a treatment alternating between hot

  • Contraindications to the use of both hot and cold stones
  • Health and safety requirements

Our day courses are kept to a maximum of 6 students per course to ensure that individual attention and guidance is given to each student.
