Hot Stones Massage Diploma Course (postgraduate)

Cost: £175

Your clients will LOVE this treatment – and once they have experienced it they will become hooked! Hot Stones massage is becoming synonymous with spa style luxury and the effect of one stroke with a hot stone is said to be worth five with just the hands! There is no real pressure required which means that the therapist benefits too – less strain on the wrists and fingers. The massage is slow and gentle and incredibly soothing and relaxing for the client.

This is an intensive 1 day course for students who already hold a Body Massage qualification. It includes background and practical information for the treatment, the safe use of the hot stones and their application. Since all students will already be qualified in body massage, the course is very much about helping them to incorporate the stones into their existing routine, rather than asking them to learn a whole new one.

The course provides intensive professional training in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Students are provided with a comprehensive manual and a session on professional practicalities and background to the treatment, although most of the emphasis is on practical training.

Assessment is practical, in order to ensure that the student is able to carry out the treatment confidently, safely and effectively. There is also a verbal assessment to ensure the student is confident with the theory contained in the course. If any student has not reached the required standard on the day, they will be invited to return to re-sit the course free of charge within one month: after that, the course must be paid for again.


Lomi Lomi Massage Diploma Course (postgraduate)

Cost: £175

Lomi Lomi or “Loving Hands” massage has its roots in the Hawaiian tradition. Quite different from a Western style massage, it involves an almost dance-like movement around the client, stretching and working the muscles with a strong spiritual element. Massage techniques with wonderful names such as “Wave”, “Bamboo” and “Seashell” offer a twist on the usual experience, as the client relaxes under a cotton sarong and enjoys the flowing, brisk yet caring treatment that is Lomi Lomi. A totally unique therapy to offer your clients!

The course provides intensive professional training in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Students are provided with a comprehensive manual and a session on professional practicalities and background to the treatment, although most of the emphasis is on practical training.
