Intro to Hot Stones
About the Course
This is a 1 day (8 CE) course. 130 degree Fahrenheit water can burn human tissue within one minute, making hot stone burns the #1 injury claimed by clients to insurance companies. Despite this, the average operating temperature of a hot stone heating source is approximately 130 degrees. This course will present the most up to date protocols of hot stone massage including contraindications, indications, cleaning, benefits, set up, how to use stones (both clothed and draped) during massage therapy, and history. Not only will learning hot stone massage help you build your clientele and your list of services, it will extend the lifetime of your career by saving your hands from overuse.
