Heated Stone Therapy Massage

Instructor: Andrea Schally

14 Hours   $243

Course description:
Heated Stone Massage is a popular therapeutic treatment in which heated river rocks are applied directly on the body and used during the massage. We will be combining the beneficial effects of the hot rocks with traditional full body Swedish massage for a deeply relaxing, unique experience. This class is a hands-on creative experience combined with practical advice and demonstrations.

Heated Stone Massage Therapy does a lot of the work for you and makes it easier for the therapist to go deeper in the body without working harder or causing injury. The heated rocks warm the body’s tissue so that you are able to go deeper because the tissue has already relaxed and released. Your massage will have greater impact and you will be able to facilitate healing and relaxation quicker and more easily.

Topics include:

  • Using rocks as our primary tools
  • Gliding over the bones
  • Awareness of pressure
  • Benefits to the therapist
