Hot Stone Massage Training Course

This one-day Hot Stone Massage Training Course will teach you the techniques needed to give clients a deeply relaxing massage treatment.

Incorporating hot stones allows you to give a deep, healing massage without causing strain to your wrists or hands. The treatment can help both physical and mental ailments and enable your clients to relax and unwind.

It is an important skill to learn as a massage therapist, as many clients will never go back to tradition massage after experiencing hot stones.

This training course is only for students with a Body Massage certificate. It will enable you to work professionally with the appropriate insurance.

Our expert tutors will help you to gain confidence and effective hot stone massage skills.
