Hot Stone Therapy
The concept of massage therapy using stones has been practiced in different cultures for many years. Tribal Healers and Village wise women used rocks from the riverbeds and warmed them either in hot coals or hot water. By then placing the hot stones on cloth on the body and arranging them along the energy points of the body, this would help to relax the muscles and reduce pain or discomfort, and therefore support the healing process.
Hot Stone therapy is technically termed as Geothermotherapy, that is the use of heated stones and chilled stones to affect a chemical release within the human body. The placing of the stones is often followed by a holistic massage, which results in a deeper and more intense treatment.
This course will lead you through the procedure and teach you everything you need to know in order to become a competent professional Hot Stone Massage therapist.
Workshops are provided by the course writer Sue Etherden.
