Overview

About the course

Who is this programme for?

This course is designed for adults wanting to learn a new skill or develop a new career path. Practical skills and guidance with home study to support course work and underpinning knowledge.

What will I study?

Our Hot Stone Massage course offers massage technicques that go back many thousands of years. The aim of hot stone therapy is to open up the energy channels in the body, eliminate tension in the muscles, remove toxins from the body and  promote deep relaxation. 

Hot stone massage therapy combines the benefits of thermotherapy (heat therapy) with massage techniques, to create a deeply relaxing and healing treatment. The treatment involves placing smooth warm basalt stones along pressure points on the body and using them as tools for massage, promoting deep relaxation, opening up energy channels, and triggering the natural healing process. Cold stones (cryotherapy) can also be used in conjunction with the hot stones, creating a dramatic movement of fluids within the body, helping with conditions involving congestion; sinusitis, dark eye circles, inflammation and tissue trauma.

The iron content in the basalt stones retains the heat and this has a calming and soothing effect on the skin and muscles. The pressure from the stones, applied to the muscles helps promote circulation and relieves congestion between the joints and tissues, enhancing the effects of a deep tissue massage and promoting deeper relaxation and a sense of calm.
