Overview

About the Level 3 Hot Stone Massage Certificate

Hot stone massage is a specialty massage that uses smooth, heated stones placed on the body, or as massaging tools. Hot stone therapy is one of the most popular stress-relief treatments. Known to ease muscle tension, improve circulation, promote all-round wellbeing, this type of massage is even thought to relieve multiple sclerosis or fibromyalgia. The hot stone massage course covers everything you need to know about massage, history, effects and different types of stone therapies. It also includes notions of physiology, musculoskeletal affections, recommended course of treatment and aftercare.

The course has an indicative 160 hours of study, but you can take as little or as long over it. There are no deadlines and no time pressures. Take your time, pause it, or study it faster than the average time.

Who should study this course?

Experienced massage therapists, as well as complete beginners are welcomed to embark on this learning journey to discover the history of hot stones, their fascinating effect on the human body and new techniques and different types of treatments. Some hospitals encourage nurses to study alternative therapies to offer relief to oncology patients, for example.

To enrol straight away on the hot stone massage certification, there is no need for prior qualifications, or experience. Interest and motivation, and the means to access our home study materials, are all it takes to successfully complete this course.

What happens after the course?

Successful achievement of the certification will lead to a ground knowledge in alternative therapy like massage. You can study further for other alternative medicine practices or specialise in massage therapies.

A course in massage therapy can become a self-employment venture, if you wish to take a turn in your professional life. The syllabus contains not only massage concepts, but also lessons in business, marketing, and finance necessary to the set-up of a business. Self-employed or not, you can find work within a private clinic, a beauty salon, a spa or by visiting clients’ house. Some of the positions you can find:
