The use of Hot Stone for healing dates back to ancient times. The heat relaxes muscles and allows 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, tension, insomnia, and depression.
Hot Stone Massage is an alternative medicine or massage technique applying hot stones to specific points on the body. The use of hot stones can aid in relaxing and releasing knots in muscles, overall body relaxation, improvement in circulation and can also help with stress release and help a client to feel refreshed.
Stones are used to relax muscles and increase the blood flow to the area being worked on, which helps to accelerate the healing process. Stones may be placed along the spine, along the chakra centers, on the extremities, as well as on the face, the feet, and the hands.
We hold Hot Stone Massage classes throughout the year. This class teaches the art of Hot Stone Massage and how to safely handle the stones for a full body treatment. The class begins with the history of Hot Stone Massage and stone therapy, contraindications, care and cleaning of the stones, and necessary equipment. The course continues with a demonstration and guided hands-on work and session practice. The class incorporates several techniques to create a very relaxing treatment for your clients.
When a new Hot Stone Massage class is scheduled, we will feature it on our website and social media.
