Our Hot Stones Massage practitioner training course includes everything you need to safely and professionally conduct a Hot Stones Massage treatment. We can arrange SOLO or BESPOKE tuition for you at a date that suits you best.
SOLO tuition gives you the opportunity to focus upon individual requirements and the course will be tailored to your skill level and previous experience. Because solo tuition is one-to-one training (just yourself and the teacher) you would need to bring along a massage model with you who can be a friend or family member. As part of your learning experience the teacher would demonstrate the full treatment routine upon you at the start of the day.
If you wish to arrange training for more than one person we will create a BESPOKE course date for two or more people to attend. Bespoke courses are perfect for couples, friends or colleagues who only wish to attend a course that has been arranged just for them. On bespoke courses participants work upon one another so there is no need to bring along a massage model.
Please note: You need to have a qualification in body massage in order to undertake this course.
No. You need to hold a qualification in bosy massage in order to attend this course.
Yes of course. This course is offered as one-to-one so you'll receive focused guidance and individual attention from our teacher. You will also be taught a complete therapy treatment routine for delivering to your clients. And because students practice upon one another, you will also experience for yourself how amazing and effective this treatment can be.
You will learn the same practical skills as with a longer course but you'll need to practice the treatment routine upon friends and family, using your manual and (where available) our on-line tutorial videos for further assistance after your practical training in order to perfect the techniques.
You're always welcome to return and attend only the practical training again. This is known as a refresher course and allows you to brush up on the techniques you have learned with us. Refresher courses are only available to students who have previously completed their course with us, and substantial discounts are offered.
No, this is a Diploma course. Diploma courses are also known as ‘short courses’ or ‘fast-track training’. However, the treatment techniques you'll learn are similar, and in some cases more extensive than on a level 3 course.
Diploma in Hot Stones Massage.
Friendly & informal instruction.
Solo or bespoke tuition.
Tutor focused on your needs.
Easy & fun to learn.
You need to have a qualification in body massage in order to undertake this course.
The theory test: Study your course manual at home and complete a theory test paper online. You can retake the test as many times as you like until you reach the pass mark and at no extra charge.
1 day practical: Starting at 10am and finishing at 5pm participants will be taught all of the practical skills needed to deliver a hot stones massage treatment. There is no practical test. Instead we assess the participants understanding and ability of each treatment technique as it is taught. If you opt for solo tuition you will need to bring a massage model with you on the training day. This can be a friend or member of your family.
This is the background and theory that you study from home and then complete an online test paper before attending your practical training. It is easily completed with between 8-12 hours of study time. For some people it may a little take longer.
