I took Lisa’s Hot Stone Therapy Course, and it helped me more than I 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 own technique for doing the massage. Then I took this course and learned so much more than I knew before. Having had used stones before, I did have an advantage in the class because instead of learning how to handle the stones, I focused on the techniques used. On the first day, we learned a style that I didn’t previously know. It focused a lot on the energy, flow, and balance of the treatment. 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 at all about stones for specific treatments. The consensus towards Hot Stone is that it is just a fluffy spa massage. The use of hot and cold stones on the body can be therapeutic since it creates circulation and in a deeper contrast treatment than hydrotherapy. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in Stone therapy or who is 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 amazing. My client was very happy and had never had a Hot Stone treatment like it before. 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 wanted to take Pregnancy and Postnatal Massage with Seminars for Health to become more confident in treating pregnant and postpartum women as my college didn’t touch on this at all. I honestly feel that a lot of therapist leave school scared and too nervous to treat pregnant and postpartum women. I actively avoided it. Janine does a great job of dispelling the misinformation that’s out there regarding pregnancy and massage. Her knowledge and experience is vast and fills you with confidence. She showed some great techniques and made sure everyone was super confident with the sidelying positioning, draping and bolstering. The booklet we used and took home is great and really useful. I’ve been taking it with me when I have a maternity or postpartum massage just for reference. It gives you all of the contraindications and cautions to watch out for broken down into trimester as well as safe positioning and techniques to use for each trimester. All in all I feel 100 times more confident since taking the course and I feel like clients feel more cofident in you when you know the right questions to ask and understand the issues facing pregnant and postpartum women. I would highly recommend this course to all therapists! Pregnant women aren’t scary and they need massage and support more than anyone.
