Hot and Cold Stone Massage Course – More Details
This Hot and Cold Stone Massage training course taught at Brighton Holistics is comprehensive and practical. Hot and Cold Stone Massage has become one of the most popular treatments. Working in harmony with massage, this technique uses warm stones, placed on the client’s body and in the therapists’ hands.
The heat gently penetrates the skin and muscles, helping the client to relax and de-stress in half the time. Essential oils can also be used, and other techniques like lymphatic drainage or reflexology can also benefit from thermal stone massage.
Hot Stone Massage is used to help treat medical problems and ease tension in the mind and works with the body to make it a holistic whole-body treatment. Using stones, the therapist can penetrate the muscle fibres at a deeper level than manual massage alone, allowing it to be more effective for your client.
During the course we will cover the following topics:
- What is hot and cold stone body massage,
- History of hot and cold stone massage,
- Heater layout,
- Hot stone,
- Cold stones,
- Using hot and cold stones together,
- Contraindications to hot and cold stone massage,
- Contraindications to applying heat on the body,
- Massage movements,
- Anatomy and physiology revision,
- Hot stone massage routine.
