This comprehensive training combines the best of both worlds – anti-aging facial massage plus therapeutic massage of the neck, face, back, and arms. Gentle yet precise strokes using stones, both warm and cold, will relax muscles, tone and tighten the face, and stimulate collagen production. Relieving tension in the face, jaw, and neck will visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Our technique combines 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.

  Proper body mechanics are an integral part of this course and you will learn how to incorporate stones into your massage 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 a massage table, bolster, linens, and oil/lotion.
