Hot Stone Therapy Course

A very popular therapy.  Learn the massage technique that uses heated Basalt Lava Stones to warm the client's muscles, allowing a much deeper working of the tissues than a conventional massage.  Find out which stones are chosen to correspond to specific parts of the body and how to use cold marble stones to balance the body.

Hot stone is a speciality massage that uses smooth heated stones. Here at the Carlton Institute, we use hand picked Canadian Balsalt rock. It is a deeply soothing and relaxing form of massage, where the heat of the stones  encourages tight muscles to relax. It  consists of traditional Swedish massage strokes encorporated with the stones.

You will cover the preparation and consultation process of the treatment, as well as techniques,  movements, contra-actions and aftercare. Learn a new contemporary form a massage which has now become very popular in the industry.

Once you successfully complete the hot stone therapy course you will receive The Carlton Institute diploma. This will enable you to obtain public liability insurance.
