"I’ve just qualified as a hot stone massage therapist with Stephanie. The 2 day practical course was held at her home studio in Bristol. The theory side is done online prior to the practical course - which means the 2 days can be dedicated to hands on learning.
Steph keeps the training groups small so you have her full attention the whole time. I have been on other massage courses where the groups are too big and you don’t receive as much one on one coaching. We had lots of time to watch Steph demonstrate and then lots of time to practice on each other.
The whole time she’s there to watch and guide us. I highly recommend any of Stephs courses. She has a wealth of knowledge to share in a easy to learn natural way."
"What a great add on to my massage treatments.
The use of warm healing stones to allow clients to relax deeper and relieve the stress and strains of life, it really is a game changer. I am so glad i choose this training with this school.
As usual Steph was knowledgeable, professional (fully covid secure) and encouraging as a trainer. The depth of her anatomical knowledge really helps you get the most from the 2 days and if its a while since you trained a great opportunity to review your technique and maybe learn some new ones.
We trained at Stephs home treatment room and it was warm and welcoming, she supplied everything we needed and was very helpful in her advice with the best options for purchasing our new kit.
Stones and warmer ordered and i just can't wait to share this with others and train hubby in the basics so I can continue to enjoy it myself on the regular."
