Do you want to have the ability to give a Hot Stone massage without the mess of heating stones in water, without the risk of burning your hands and without losing contact with your client? This class is a great way to incorporate hot and cold therapy along with Accu-Pressure into your everyday massage menu while saving your hands at the same time.
Patrick has developed a tool to allow you to perform Hot Stone Massage without all of the hassle associated with giving a hot stone massage.
This class will introduce you to the Accu-Roller and Accu-Sticks. You will effectively learn to use the tools to deliver massage in prone, side lying and supine position. Treatments can last from 30-90 minutes.
You will find it easy to deliver a “DEEP” tissue massage with little effort using the Accu-Roller and Accu-Sticks. The specially designed Accu-Pins allow you to deliver pin point pressure with ease.
This class will show you how easy the Accu-Roller is to use and take care of. The stones can easily be heated on an electric skillet or in a microwave for about 90 seconds and will stay hot for up to 20 minutes. They can also be cooled in the refrigerator for cold therapy.
