Energetic Hot Stone Massage CE Course This continuing education course will train students on how to utilize hot stones to connect the body with the mind and the spirit.

We will be utilizing the energetic anatomy to enhance the overall effects of thermal therapy. We will also cover the basics (equipment, set-up, sanitation and how to harvest your own stones). If you have never had a hot stone massage class or if you have learned the basics this class will educate you on the energetic component of hot stone massage and integrate your skills to tune into the subtle energy fields of the body. This course is highly experiential and will offer hands on training into enhancing your intuition and benefit you as a therapist by eliminating undue stress on thumbs and wrists by allowing the stones to melt away tension.

Multiple-Client Training
Saturday & Sunday
08/15/2009 - 08/16/2009
9 AM - 6 PM

As many personal trainers are now using boot camps and group exercise classes to better market themselves and gain new clients, this course takes personal training skills from the one-on-one level to a group format. Through a workshop-type format, students will learn how to work effectively with a group with proper cuing, communication and exercises that translate well to a team format. By the end of the course, each student will lead the class through a demo class. The instructor will combine lecture, observation, hands-on work and class interaction.
