“Over 10,000 years ago, the ancestors of Native American tribes began offering stones to the body for wellness. Stone Medicine introduces these ancient traditions using heated and chilled stones, gem and crystal stones, and various animal ‘medicines’ (energies).” (from the Stone Medicine Website)
Stone Medicine offers shamanic bodywork training to massage therapists as well as other body workers and healers. The techniques of Stone Medicine are of Native American origin and have been carefully passed down through many generations of healers and Medicine people. I feel gratitude to be able to share these powerful healing traditions with you and to be able to carry them forward to new generations of healers!
Stone Medicine offers massage continuing education opportunities worldwide for anyone who feels drawn to this one of a kind healing modality. I am proud to be an instructor for Stone Medicine. I teach stone massage classes in Minnesota and I am also happy to work with you to bring these incredible teachings to you, wherever you may be located worldwide!
Stone Medicine is the only stone massage therapy being taught today that is based on ancient Native American traditions. This unique modality is a graceful combination of stone massage and ancient ceremonies that can bring a renewed sense of purpose and wonder into your practice and can give you clients a breath of sacredness in their daily lives and healing on a deeper level.
In a Stone Medicine workshop, you will learn learn so much more than just another treatment process! During class, you will participate in ceremonies that will give you a deeper connection to what you are learning as well as honoring the Ancestors and tribe that these teachings come from. For many people, learning these sacred ceremonies is as profound an experience as learning the treatment itself!
One of the things that I love most about Stone Medicine is the opportunity to preserve these ancient healing traditions and carry them on, so that they can continue to serve wellness for many generations to come.
Stone Medicine workshops are one of the best ways to learn the art and science of Stone Massage as they heavily stress the importance of safety and proper sanitation. In the age of lawsuits over hot stone massage burns and antibiotic resistant infections, these points are crucial to learn the right way and apply consistently in your stone massage practice by taking high quality massage continuing education course!
Stone Medicine workshops are accredited by the Stone Massage Association, the foremost certifying organization for Stone Massage. Many Stone Medicine courses are certified by NCBTMB for massage therapy CEU credits to fulfill your NCBTMB certification requirements.
During class, we will learn through discussion and demonstration as well as visual aids. You will learn to dance with the stones by doing, and by the end of the workshop, you will be empowered and ready to go back and offer the treatment to your clients.
If you are looking for something more than just another modality or required massage continuing education credits to tuck under your belt, something that will bring a sense of sacredness and a deeper, more spiritual level of healing to your clients and your practice, please consider taking a Stone Medicine workshop.
One of my greatest joys in teaching is passing on to you the passion that I have for the stones and the deep gratitude in my heart for these ceremonies. I am looking forward to being a part of your journey of learning and to sharing these ancient healing ceremonies with you!
