Diploma Course in Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage is a very popular treatment in spas throughout the world. The complete hot stone massage training course is ideal for anyone wishing to learn to apply these special stones (usually basalt) to offer an invigorating and amazing massage treatment.
Previous experience with hot stones is not required but massage is, as this treatment can be incorporated into many holistic therapy treatments or as a stand alone therapy.
Once the stones have been placed correctly and left to do their job then this is often followed up by a holistic massage which offers a more intense and deeper treatment as the heat from the stones helps to penetrate the body and aids in relaxing the muscles on a deeper level that just normal massage.
It is recommended that students have a basic knowledge of massage if ordering this course such as basic aromatherapy.

Thanks for another great and easy to follow course in massage. I really appreciated the clear and concise advise offered throughout. I was pleased to visit the student library to watch some full treatments in hot stone massage which helped with my case study.We have now introduced this as an add on therapy at our private salon. Thank You. Charlene James – UK
After hours of research looking for a training program to get the certification I needed, this was value for money for me. One of the reasons I had not done this sooner was due to time and cost. Not understanding the process of insurance and getting to work with an accreditation. The hot stone massage course really is a business in a box, you do not just receive the course, and you receive experience, knowledge, and the power to act on it. For me that was priceless. I am so grateful of the opportunity and looking forward to obtaining more qualifications with Luna. Linda Beswick – Heywood – Lancs UK
