A Therapeutic Approach to Stone Massage -Back, Legs, Feet, and Abdomen

  • Center for Natural Wellness 3 Cerone Commercial Drive Albany, NY, 12205 United States (map)

In this comprehensive training, you will learn techniques using stones that will enhance your massage therapy sessions and extend your career. This course will focus on the back, the front and back of the legs, the feet, and the abdomen. Proper body mechanics are an integral part of this course and you will learn how to incorporate stones into your massage without harming your wrists and hands.

We will cover treatments for back pain, shoulder pain, and plantar fasciitis.  We will demonstrate how to use the stones broadly for myofascial release and specifically for trigger point release or muscle stripping.

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.                                                          

Participants should bring linens, and oil/lotion. Stones will be provided for use in class.
