What do MTs say about this course?
I took Lisa’s Hot Stone Therapy Course, which helped me more than expected. I already had practice with Hot Stone, having had every workplace I worked taught me how they did their protocol; however, I’d never had an actual course. I knew how to handle the rocks well and created my massage technique. Then I took this course and learned much more than I knew before. Having used stones before, I had an advantage in the class because instead of learning how to handle the stones, I focused on the techniques used. We learned a style that I didn’t previously know on the first day. It focused on the treatment’s energy, flow, and balance. I loved the technique we learned for a full-body relaxation Hot Stone massage. On the second day, we went deeper and learned about cold stones and how stones could be used in a specialty treatment massage. This was intriguing because I previously did not know about stones for specific treatments. The consensus towards Hot Stone is that it is just a fluffy spa massage. Hot and cold stones on the body can be therapeutic since they create circulation in a more profound contrast treatment than hydrotherapy. So I would recommend this course to anyone interested in Stone therapy or interested in a different approach to therapeutic work. I found it beneficial to myself and my practice. I’ve used the new techniques already, and the results were terrific. My client was thrilled and had never had a Hot Stone treatment like it before. So she rebooked right away because she loved it so much. This course proves that Hot Stone Therapy Massage is more than just a fluffy spa treatment, and I’m very grateful I took it.
I cannot believe how much difference the Dynamic Cups have made within my treatment. The benefits are so therapeutic. The kinetic movement techniques provide a deeper release while helping my clients relax.
