The use of hot stones has been recorded for healing from ancient times all over the world, including Native America, South America, China, Africa, Europe, Egypt, and India. Hot stones were used for many reasons, from heating homes to sacred rituals. People carried or wore stones for health and protection. Amethyst crystals and quartz crystals are still popular.

The purpose of this workshop is to teach participants how to perform a massage using heated stones and understand the health benefits, combining practical techniques with simple energy work. It includes practical hands-on sessions. You will also learn about the body/mind connection, where we store energy blocks, and how to locate them & move them out of the body. The purpose of this massage is not only to relax and rejuvenate the body, but to balance it. It is a soothing massage, great for helping arthritis as well as healing a flu virus or a cold. A certificate is available after successful completion of the hot stone massage course plus a practicum.

I attended the Healing Massage course instructed by Sharon Strang Feb 6 week-end 2009. What a pleasure it was to be in the company of like-minded people. Through Sharon’s relaxed manner, yet outgoing personality and through her personal stories she shared I was able to see things differently in the way I give my treatments. She has given me my confidence back, I once again love doing massage. A huge thank-you to you Sharon. I would recommend this course.

Sharon is a fun, energetic, informative and knowledgeable teacher. She gave me excellent training to start an exciting career into relaxation massage. Thank you Sharon for giving me the opportunity to fulfill my dreams.

I have had the privilege of being a student in two of Sharon Strang’s massage classes. Relaxation Level I and Hot Stone Massage. I found Sharon’s classes to be interesting, informative, and easy to understand. Sharon works at a comfortable pace and is happy to answer all questions knowledgeably. Her lessons are filled with practical experience, humour and valuable information on how to set up your own massage practice.

Sharon keeps the class size small and manageable so that all of the students get her one to one attention. The classes are hands on and gives you the confidence to learn the massage techniques in a comfortable and safe learning environment that is very enjoyable. She also incorporates breathing and meditation into the class in the morning. It becomes a nice way to start the day.

I have completed my first practicum and received my certificate to practise from Sharon. My clients, friends, and family have given me excellent feedback regarding my massage techniques and I feel confident in my abilities. I would not hesitate to recommend Sharon Strang’s massage courses, she is a gifted teacher.
