Hot Stone Massage Workshop -April 26, 2015 - Barrie

(Sometimes referred to as Level II - Thai Hot Stem Massage Training)
Imagine a treatment that works on muscular pain, is magically relaxing while easing the signs of ageing leaving your client looking younger and healthier.
This technique is great for both the massage therapist and the aesthetician. This will enhance your current training!
The Thai Hot Stem Facial Massage has its roots in the Herbal Compress therapy which has been used for hundreds of years in Thailand. This has been blended with European skin care along with specific techniques from Swedish Massage, Chinese Acupressure and Chinese Facial Reflexology.
This new treatment was developed by Dana Pharant RMT who has been a Massage Therapist and Educator for 20 years. She has developed this to create a treatment which can be utilized for both musculoskeletal disorders as well as incorporated into skin care facial routines.
You can use this as a stand-alone treatment or as an add-on to another -such as a body wrap or Swedish massage. Great up sell!
The clay stems are great for treating tension headaches or TMJ since they hold the heat for a longer time than the other two types and moist heat gets deeper into the muscles than dry heat therapies.
The coconut stems are deeply moisturizing for the skin that has been stripped of moisture from the harsh winter winds or just genetics and time.
The sesame stems are gentle for sensitive skin and stimulate the cells to repair and exfoliate.
In this one day hands-on workshop, you will learn and master the techniques for the Facial Treatment using Thai Hot Stems. The three types of available compresses (stems) are luxurious and soothing to the skin.
During the class you will both give and receive 3 Thai Hot Stem Facial Massages. You will get a chance to experience from both sides each of the three types of stems.
Your supplies for the workshop (one pair of each of the Facial Thai Stems - coconut, sesame, & clay) are provided for you to use.
Make sure you pick up suppliesto practice with after the class as well as to treat clients with. Now that you have taken the course with us you get special pricing just for our grads! Your stems are now only $9.00 per pair. Buy what you need - you will get the same low price.
CERTIFICATION: Each participant who completes the workshop will receive a signed certificate at the end of the course.
Your Teacher: Dana Pharant, RMT has been teaching massage techniques since 1997, including teaching at the Canadian College of Massage & Hydrotherapy. She also underwent additional training in Thailand when she went to visit our producer of the herbal stems.
Understanding the need for excellence in support materials, Dana has subsequently developed comprehensive manuals for both the body and facial techniques. She has also developed a step-by-step instructional DVD for the body treatment and is working on producing one for the facial treatment.
Class Size: Small class size (limited to 20) participants allows for the necessary one on one instruction to ensure you master the techniques properly. Your small class size also allows your instructor to guide you on your personal ergonomics while administering treatment.
