Hot Stone Massage

Hot Stone Massage Professional training

2 day workshop, 9-5pm. Dates of next workshop tba

 

Stone massage is an ancient, healing and deeply relaxing form of therapeutic body work, using heated and cooled stones as extensions of the hands. Warm stones can be used as an adjunct in most massage work or as a complete treatment in itself – pointed textured stones for deep massage and acupressure work, smooth, flat, round stones can be laid on the body and glide effortlessly over oiled muscles, easing strain and tension. Participants must have some previous massage experience. Due to the practical nature of this workshop and the supervision provided, numbers are limited to 6 only.
