Hot Stone Massage

Toms River Campus – May 30, 2024 • 9AM-5PM
West New York Campus – 2024 Dates TBD • 9AM-5PM
Presented by Montana Woodward, LMT

This course on Hot Stones will educate LMT’s on how to safely use these tools and incorporate them into their practices. Having hot stones as a tool to add to services not only will increase revenue but will also open the door to a number of ways you can use them and enhance your services. 

As the heat penetrates the muscles, they relax allowing the therapeutic benefits to extend much deeper than manual manipulation of the soft tissue will do alone. The heat of the stones penetrates to the deeper layers of muscle leaving clients feeling relaxed and loose. You will learn benefits, indications, contraindications and modifications. 

Registrants should come dressed in comfortable clothes and be prepared to both give and receive hot stone massage. Students need to bring massage oil as the preferred lubricant for hot stone massage, and bring their own linens, blankets and massage supplies plus several bath and hand towels for use in the classroom. The school will supply massage tables, bolsters, stools and hot stone pots for use in the classroom.
