Excellent for clients who cannot tolerate deep tissue work, such as those with fibromyalgia. The heat of the stones allow the muscle and fascia to open up and release tension and restrictions without aggressive deep tissue techniques. This is good news for you and your clients.
The workshop will touch on the background and theory of hot stone massage; as well as detailing the specific how-to of the stone massage training.
You will also learn about cold stones and how effective they are therapeutically.
Learn from an instructor with 24+ years of hands on experience and a strong drive to teach you how to lengthen your career and make more money all while decreasing the strain on your body.
In class training allows for you to receive correction on your technique and to ask questions so that you come away feeling confident in your skills and providing a high level of therapy for your clients.
