EarthStone Hot Stone Massage Training

EarthStone Hot Stone Massage is an integrative stone therapy that also allows room for individual therapists to bring their own skills, knowledge and philosopies to their work. It is a blending of the best techniques from ancient stone healing traditions, current scientific knowledge and innovative connective bodywork, offering a comprehensive, effective methodology for the practice of stone massage.

EarthStone Hot Stone Massage makes the most of the physiological effects of using very hot stones in massage, as the process stimulates circulation, lymph flow and metabolism, softens and relaxes tight musculature, and melts and frees fascial restrictions. The result is a profound sense of balance and well-being on all levels. Since the heat does some of the work, and the stone can be used as a tool, the therapist's body benefits as well.
