This is a vocational qualification and includes all the required elements to work effectively as a stone therapy massage specialist including, three mandatory units covering the following: applying stone massage therapy, health and safety and client care.
Throughout this qualification you will develop your knowledge and understanding of relevant anatomy and physiology, health and safety, client care and massage products. You will also develop a range of technical skills enabling you to prepare the body, use a stone heater and place stones and provide relaxing massage treatments using basalt stones and a variety of techniques. You will also develop interpersonal skills that will assist you to communicate effectively with clients.
Entry Requirement:
You will need to hold an NVQ Level 3 in Swedish Massage in order to enroll on to this course as an NVQ or certificate in massage to complete as a short course.
What will I receive when I complete the course, assessments and exams?
Once you have passed your exams, completed four practical assessments and your written portfolio work, you will gain an accredited VTCT NVQ Level 3 in Hot Stone Massage.
What could this qualification lead to?
This NVQ qualification will allow you to work as a qualified beauty massage therapist. As the NVQ is an industry wide recognised qualification, you will have opportunities in a wide range of areas such as beauty salons, health spas and day spas or the ability to work for yourself as an independent therapist.
If you don’t want to gain the NVQ then our Mi:Skin certificates are accredited with Professional Beauty, meaning you can gain liability insurance to carry out your treatments. Ideal for self employed mobile therapists.
This will involve the completion of 4 case studies at home and completion of your Mi:Skin Training workbook. On successful completion you will receive your accredited course certificate.
How is the NVQ Assessed?
You will be assessed on your knowledge and practical routines during the days you are in class with us. You will then be required to practice your new skills at home and provide three written case studies, detailing your practice treatments done at home. Upon completion of these case studies, you will be required to attend our NVQ Assessment Days where you will perform four massage treatments on clients (we organise clients for you) whilst being assessed by an NVQ Assessor. You will also need to sit two Exam Papers with us to evidence your anatomy and physiology knowledge.
