Hot Stone Therapy


The concept of massage therapy using stones has been practiced in different cultures for many years. Tribal Healers and Village wise women used

rocks from the riverbeds and warmed them either in hot coals or hot water. By then placing the hot stones on cloth on the body and arranging

them along the energy points of the body, this would help to relax the muscles and reduce pain or discomfort, and therefore support the healing



Hot Stone therapy is technically termed as Geothermotherapy, that is the use of heated stones and chilled stones to affect a chemical release

within the human body. The placing of the stones is often followed by a holistic massage, which results in a deeper and more intense treatment.


This course will lead you through the procedure and teach you everything you need to know in order to become a competent professional Hot

Stone Massage therapist.

Hi Julia

Many thanks I am delighted with the final result for my course!

I wanted you to know that I thought this Hot Stone Therapy course was excellent, the subject materials went into more depth than I expected and gave very clear instruction for the 'practical section'. A very enjoyable and informative course. Thank you!
