Hot Stone Massage for Hands, Arms, And Feet: For Clients & Yourself

Our hands and feet take a beating every day and a relaxing massage is a welcome relief.

This class is designed to show you ways to address common injuries such as plantar fasciitis as well as how to pamper the extremities with soothing hot stone massage. Working the intricate musculature of the hands and feet can be challenging to our own hands, especially our thumbs, unless we work consciously and carefully. We will review the anatomy of the feet, hands, and forearms and discuss common problems that can arise in these areas. Proper body mechanics are an integral part of this course and you will learn how to work with stones without compromising your wrists and hands.

The contraindications/considerations of hot stone massage will be reviewed and we will discuss ways to alter sessions to accommodate certain conditions. You will learn how to heat or cool stones to the proper temperature to achieve our desired therapeutic outcome: deep muscle relief without causing tissue trauma and learn how to sanitize your stones for client safety. Stone massage can save your hands and extend your career. You will be working with more ease and less strain.

Participants should bring linens and oil/lotion and stones if you have them.

Therapeutic Anti-Aging Face & Neck Massage

This comprehensive training combines the best of both worlds – anti-aging facial massage plus therapeutic massage of the neck and face. Our technique combines the use of hot and cold stones and hands using acupressure to stimulate the nerves in the face with a series of vertical and horizontal moves to relax facial muscles and connective tissue, increase blood flow and stimulate lymph drainage. We will work specifically with the muscles of the jaw, face, and neck to address tension in the jaw, headaches, and tension held in the neck.

Students will learn how to heat or cool stones to the proper temperature to achieve our desired therapeutic outcome: deep muscle relief without causing tissue trauma. And they will learn how to clean their stones for client safety. The contraindications of hot stone massage will be reviewed and we will discuss ways to alter sessions to accommodate certain conditions.
