"Prior to taking this class I had a preconceived notion that hot stone was more a fiu fiu type fluff massage and not necessarily therapeutic. I liked the detail and hands on material. I think everything was covered well without unnecessary filler. I think it was well laid out."
"I can't wait to offer hot stone massage! It was a great overall class, well planned, organized, great demos, plenty of time to practice, clean facility, and excellent instruction. I thought it was perfect! Ashley is a fantastic and enthusiastic instructor, clear and concise with her teaching and able to answer all of our questions. I would definitely take another class from her."
"I enjoyed the hands on experience and ease of discussion. It was perfect."
