Hot Stone Massage Course

During this course, you will learn to carry out this alternative therapy treatment, to use with your Body Massage Qualification.  The use of hot stone is an ancient healing art, used to help your client unwind and relax, allowing a modality for physical and spiritual balancing. The course will teach you how to practice full body and facial massage techniques using the warm stones. Traditionally we use the 7 chakras to promote healing with well-being with the associated stones. The stones are linked with organs located in the area of the Chakra to treat the universal consciousness.
