Hot & Cold Stone Massage Course

Hot & Cold Stone Massage Course

Our Hot and Cold Massage course will enable you to use hot stones, cold stone and semi-precious gem stones to deliver a full body massage treatment including back massage, arm and leg massage and face massage.

Capture the power of mother earth and its healing stones and shift stress and tension in your clients with this amazing treatment. Stone massage is often called the queen of holistic treatments due to its amazing effects that the clients feel days after they have been to a therapist.

Delivered by experienced tutors who know the power of energy therapies, this treatment is best learnt properly and in its entirety e.g. using basalt stones, marble stones and chakra stones rather than just use of basalt stones only. We pride ourselves in offering this training to you helping you to learn about these different stones and using them in your treatments be it body massage, foot massage, facial or hand massage. You will also learn how to manage, monitor and maintain your tools and equipment.

First of all congratulations! You can attend some courses such as waxing, facial, manicure, pedicure, eyelash extension, threading etc., which are not intensively based on massage. For other courses which are more for full body or are heavily massage based, we would request you to either get a permission from your midwife / GP or bring a model to work on. This is because in UK the legislation is very clear only qualified medical professionals can work on a pregnant client. For another learner to work on you during the course, they need permission from your qualified medical professional e.g. midwife or GP. Also we will need to assign a qualified pregnancy massage specialist tutor to the course that you will be joining so let us know at the time of enrolment. We recommend that you wait for the first trimester to be over before deciding to do any training course

Yes. Upon successful completion of any of our accreditation courses you can obtain public liability insurance and offer your services the public for a fee.
