Hot Stone Massage


The Online Hot Stone Massage Diploma Course is based on the ancient art of healing and aiding in creating both physical and spiritual balance. Through the use of special stones and techniques the massage is very effective in creating more positive energy flow for your client. 

The stones which are usually basalt are placed into a special purpose-built Stone Heater filled with water. When the stones have been sufficiently heated they are placed onto certain points on the body like the back, hands, legs, etc. The therapist uses the remaining heated stones to massage and work the muscles.

Benefits of a Hot Stone Massage

  •          Improved Blood Flow to Tissues
  •          Elimination of Toxins 
  •          Improved Circulation
  •          Alleviates Stress, Anxiety and Tension
  •          Osteoarthritis and Arthritis Pain
  •          Depression
  •          Back Pain
  •          General Aches and Pains

As the hot stone massage requires slightly more preparation and clean-up and usually runs longer it tends to be more expensive than a basic Swedish massage. A hot stone massage can run anywhere from $125-$150 but can go even higher especially if it is performed in a hotel or resort spa. It is recommended that students already have a good basic knowledge of massage such as basic aromatherapy.
