Hot stone massage is increasing in popularity. Heated stones in fragrant oils are applied to key points on the  body. The direct heat relaxes the body which means the massage is more effective and intense than a regular massage. The technique of working the hot stones along the body with cooler stones encourages the body to detox and heal, increasing lymph flow and flush out waste.

In this Hot stone massage course you will learn the skills and techniques to perform hot stone massages successfully, ensuring you client releases stored tension, boosts circulation, recharges energy levels and enjoys deep relaxation.
