Instructor: Jim Funk, LMT
The use of Hot Stones for healing dates back to ancient times. The heat relaxes muscles, allowing the therapist to work without using deep pressure. Hot Stone massage will help the client with back pain and aches, poor circulation, osteoarthritis pain, stress, anxiety and tension, insomnia, and depression. This class will teach the art of Hot Stone massage and how to safely handle the stones for a full body massage. It incorporates several techniques to create a very relaxing and therapeutic treatment. The class begins with the history of stones and stone therapy, contraindications, care and cleaning of stones, and necessary equipment. The workshop continues with demonstration and guided hands-on work and session practice.
Please bring a set of sheets, two hand towels, and a large towel to the class. There is a minimum of six students to hold this class; any less may result in a change in class date.
