How long are the treatments and how much can I charge?

A Hot Stone Massage treatment usually lasts 50 minutes and would be a one hour treatment. However many therapists offer Hot Stones as a 90 minute or 2 hour treatment to really give the client an extra-special treat. Tasters can also be offered by using the hot stones to give a back or shoulder massage and so add value to other massage treatments. It should be priced at your usual hourly massage rate which may vary between £30 ad £75 per hour, depending on the area in which you practice.

Do I need to purchase anything in advance and what equipment do I need to practice?

The massage routine has also been specially developed to use the minimum number of stones for the maximum effect. This means that your investment in purchasing stones is less and the amount of cleansing and weight to carry around is less! The effect os the massage and the client experience is still top quality. All the items you use on the course will be provided for you. Details of the products and equipment you need to practice will be covered in detail on the course. We advise you not to invest in anything before you come along.

What are the benefits to my clients?

Stone therapy, as well with all massage, has physiological effects on the mind, body and spirit as the state of deep relaxation encourages rejuvenation of the whole being. The warmth also encourages very deep relaxation, and has a calming effect on the client's body and mind.
