Hot Stone Massage Training

The Hot Stone Massage Therapy course is taught with the ‘holistic’ approach that is at the core of all Meridian Courses. You will learn to work with Hot Stone Massage techniques, which can be adapted to meet the individual needs of clients. We encourage you to acknowledge and work with the ‘whole’ person - the mind, physical body, emotional self, as well as the more subtle energies. We encourage you to work ‘with’ your client, not ‘on’ your client and using your intuition, work form the heart. Hot Stone massage appears to have a calming effect, supporting stress relief, while the warmth of the stones further supports reducing pain sensations. For the Massage Therapy Practitioner, it can be used as a stand alone treatment, or complementary when integrated with other methods of body work treatments. Please note ‘specialist’ equipment will be required.

The Qualification

The Hot Stone Massage Course is accredited by the FHT (Federation of Holistic Therapies). The FHT is the UK and Ireland's largest Professional Association, supplying membership and insurance, for complementary therapists. For more information visit www.FHT.org.uk

I enjoyed all the hands on work which gave me a chance to experiment with the (bamboo) sticks techniques we were shown. The work book explains the sticks well. It might have been better if there were more sticks but it was fine with the few we had. A fun and informative day.
