Salt Stone Therapy For Massage Therapists has been designed to introduce the learner to salt stone therapy techniques, promoting injury prevention. We offer this CPD Workshop to fully qualified and insured massage therapists, who wish to diversify their techniques by including elements of salt stone therapy.
The incorporation of hot and cold salt stones in massage therapy sessions allows you to work deeper layers of tissue in less time, not only enhancing the body’s parasympathetic response, but also preventing injury to yourself, reducing wear and tear on your joints, ensuring a long and successful career.
Salt Stone Therapy is relatively inexpensive to set up compared to Stone Therapy with basalt stones. It is also quick and easy to prepare and clean up afterwards. Himalayan salt is naturally antibacterial and can be wiped with hospital-grade wipes to remove oil and dead skin cells.
Increased revenue potential due to the ability to upsell Salt Stone Therapy Massage, charging an additional fee. Because dry heat such as a heating pad is used to heat salt stones and cleaning is relatively fast and easy, you will have less work to do, which will free up your time time to see more clients.
