Hot Stone Reflexology

What is this Hot Stone Reflexology Course

Hot Stone ReflexologyThis is a one day course on using the increasingly popular hot stone therapy in reflexology.  

Learn how to do this very popular treatment option which combines the use of hot stone therapy with reflexology. The stones can be used incredibly effectively on both hands and the feet to provide a very soothing, relaxing and effective treatment.

This hot stones reflexology course gives you the opportunity to learn how to prepare, use and care for you and your client. We have a small class size (maximum six) so that everyone gets chance to have individual and personal attention in order to ensure full understanding and guidance throughout the training.  You will experience the effect of the stones yourself and learn how to use them properly, safely and to maximum benefit for your client.

You will be able to evaluate the use of both the new Vulsini bags for heating the stones and also the traditional water heater method of warming the stones. The Vulsini bag is ideal if you intend to go mobile or take your stones preheated to a salon of clinic.

The stones used are both warm and cool stones and the use of either or both alternating temperatures can quickly and effectively open up energy and reflex pathways with minimal pressure or work required by the practitioner.  In line with our other Gentle Touch Reflexology courses this method of treatment works extremely lightly and effectively, whilst inducing deep relaxation, balance and also rejuvenation.

It is perfect for:-

  • Any reflexologist who is interested in using hot & cold stones
  • Reflexologists wanting to extend the range of treatments available to their clients
