This course goes far beyond just giving you the techniques involved with hot stone massage (though this is covered in great detail also) but gives you a full knowledge about the subject.
This course takes you from complete beginner right through to becoming a competent and confident therapist. Starting with the very basics, with specific step-by-step details of massage and its benefits, anatomy and physiology, the benefits of a Hot Stone Massage, the different techniques that you can use, and including everything that you need to know about setting up your business and how to get your very first clients.
The course starts with a brief introduction as to what is involved in a hot stone massage and what to expect from the course and then moves into a fuller introduction module. This larger introduction gives you a good base to build your knowledge from, as it provides the answers to the ‘Whys’ of the subject, including the benefits, facts and theories about hot stone massage, along with a little history of its origins.
We discuss different types of stones used and the ailments and conditions this type of massage can treat and explain why you would want to give hot stone massage.
Students will learn the basics, such as the equipment you’ll need, safety concerns to be aware of, and how to set up a treatment room, to how to heat stones and techniques and tips on how to actually give a massage. Additionally, there are a number of secret tricks of the trade included that will help you to become more proficient, quicker.
We’ll show you how to create a better overall experience for your clients, how to market yourself, be better organised, what to charge, and how to grow your business.
The Hot Stone Massage Diploma Course is designed to take anyone students from beginner to business-owner. Likewise, existing business owners in the relaxation and holistic therapy industries could add hot stone massage to the treatments they offer upon completion of the course (and obtaining the necessary insurance).
The course can also be taken for those who wish to use the techniques learned within to treat their friends, family, and partners.
All practical tuition, training materials- towels, blankets, creams/oils. Massage tables/chairs are all provided on the day as well as a fully comprehensive manual. The booking fee (your deposit) is inclusive of VAT and there is no VAT to pay on the balance of the course fee.
The tutor will be happy to discuss products, prices and how much you can charge for the therapy on your training day. The tutor will also cover the insurance information for you too, we receive a discount with a large insurance company covering our training for those of you new to this field or wanting to change to a new and more affordable cover.
You also receive hot stones in with the price to take home with you...
Many other companies offering similar courses but have much larger classes, therefore it has to be taught over a longer period of time. You may be asked to come back a second day to go over what you have learnt as the tutor does not have time to get around the class due to the large numbers.
Some other schools offer their courses over 2 days, sometimes it is a good way to get you to pay more but very often you will learn the same routines so what is the difference? They will often have much larger classes so they will have to spread their training over a longer period of time however we believe in small numbers so you receive one to one tuition.
We also send a you a fantastic Anatomy and Physiology manual before you attend our courses; another reason why some training classes elsewhere are over 2 days.
This will be due to the fact the tutor will spend a lot of the time reading about the A & P on the day which we feel you should not pay for, so we give you a manual so you can learn this prior to the day and keep it for reference.
Please however remember this manual is an extra freebie from us, your course training manual is included in the cost of the course.
