Description

This dynamic stone massage home study program will help you gain new skills at your convenience. You will learn a complete, basic hot stone massage, a cool moonstone facial massage and six advanced restorative protocols covering a variety of dysfunctions. You will also discover various types of stones, textures and shapes; acquire evaluation skills so you can determine placement of stones; study how to trace each meridian to balance the body; and practice along with video demonstrations.

The video presentations, by instructor Carollanne Crichton, will demonstrate stone massage techniques and give a variety of close-up views detailing the work. The course manual gives specific explanations of the theory behind and techniques used to perform stone massage.

Prior to purchasing massage stones, the course manual will describe what to look for when selecting stones for stone massage either from stone suppliers or in nature.

Featured Reviews

I really appreciate the deep tissue applications of stone massage through this course. I wasn't interested in just a spa-like, relaxation-based class. I was really impressed with this course and would suggest it to others. My clients will be very pleased with this new modality and will like that I can integrate these new techniques with my current deep tissue, therapeutic work.

- Carlie Williams

The information given through this course far exceeded my expectations. I have a better understanding of stone massage and can now articulate with confidence the purpose and benefits of this modality. I also purchased "Healing Stone Massage 2" and Iam amazed with all the other ways of using stones for Sports Massage, Pregnancy massage etc. I reccommend this dvd to anyone wanting to understand and learn the benefits of Stone massage.

- Randall Howard, LMT

I really enjoyed this course. And was glad a video was included the presenter seemed knowledgable and had plenty of experience. I would have liked a little more information on gathering stones. I am from landlocked Utah-mostly sandstone here :) Most of the places she discussed were upper coastal US both east and west. A little more description on how to locate stones.

- Tina Marie Cook, LMT, NCTMB

I already had a general understanding of stone massage from personal experience. I found the information about the geology of stones and how they affect physiology very interesting. Understanding how the stones work with the body greatly improves my respect for this modality.

- Sierra Patterson, LMT

WOW!!!!! This course has been the best class I have EVER taken. I am already certified in Hawaiian Lomi' ili' ili hot stone massage.... but this went WAAAAY beyond what I learned in this class, and also changed how I will heat my stones from now on. Plus, I thought I had all the stones I needed, but now it's clear to me that I will need a LOT more... and Carolanne's teaching in exactly what kinds of stones I need to look for is SO helpful! I really, REALLY appreciated her history and geology lessons. And I am so very much looking forward to combining this hot stone protocol with my polarity therapy, and the Spirit Massage course I just completed, as well as the Women and Massage. I think they all integrate together VERY well, and will allow me to create my own special niche in the town where I live. I am not aware of any other therapists offering these types of massage here, so I am very excited to be able to offer this to my community. Thanks so much!

- V. Morrigan Anderson, LMT

I really enjoyed this educational experience! It EXCEEDED my expectations! I had previously heard of "Hot Stone Massage" from various people... with mixed opinions of it. Coming from a more clinical background, I appreciated the "scientific"/geological information as a way to gain a better understanding of the stones and their application. Before I even finished reading the information for the first time, I was able to share some of the scientific information with my clients.

- J. Bauer, LMT, NCTMB, ABMP

I am thrilled with the potential that this modality has for my private practice. I am realizing that stones are a very powerful tool and can be used in so many settings such as post surgery, sports, pain management, meridian work and relaxation. I am totally hooked and can hardly wait to receive the stones I have ordered. This is extremely powerful and I am grateful to have come to this realization.

- A. Allen, LMT, NCTMB

- Jennifer Cusmano

This is really great course, take your time read it carefully and you will enjoy it. I got a lot out of this course and will use all of the information in my practice.

The video, course material and test were very well written and easy to follow. With my busy work schedule this at home course allowed me to take my time. I was able to take a couple hours each day over several days to read, review and watch video content which prepared me for the online test. Thank you for generating great material!
