This course will be an introduction to Hot and Cold Stone Therapy and will include a discussion about the use of hot and cold in the application of hydrotherapy. The theories of hydrotherapy will be reviewed and the introduction of the use of stones in its application. Students will be introduced to the different types of stones, specifically basalt for the application of heat and marble for the application of cold. Students will be shown how to use these stones during the application of a standard Swedish Massage in order to introduce hydrotherapy into the session. The application of hot and cold and its reasons for use will be discussed and the contraindications for each. The hands-on portion will be the introduction of a standard hot/cold stone protocol along with modifications for local contraindications. The care and use of stones will also be discussed and demonstrated, including the cleaning and storage of the stones.
