Why is it necessary for me to undertake specific training in hot stone massage if I am a qualified massage/beauty therapist?
Training from a recognised provider is required to be adequately insured.
Can I perform massages straight after completing the course?
Yes. However we advise all of our clients to conform to ethical and professional standards. That means becoming a member of an association and obtaining indemnity insurance before massaging the public.
Is ili ili stones a recognised provider?
Ili ili stones is an accredited training provider (Platinum Level) with the International Institute for Complementary Therapists. You may wish to consider membership with this association to receive members benefit pricing on professional indemnity insurance with AON Risk Solutions Australia. To find out more about membership and/or insurance, visit the IICT website (www.iict.com.au). In addition, if you ask us to provide a certificate for the number of hours you trained with us this can be submitted with PME points to massage associations.
Is training with ili ili stones enough for me to be covered for liability insurance
Assuming you are a qualified massage/beauty therapist and your professional association and insurer recognises hot stone massage as a modality, then training with ili ili stones is adequate. We recommended checking with your individual association/insurer. You may also gain insurance as a paraprofessional with AON without a massage qualification.
Is the ili ili stones course Government accredited?
Ili ili stones training is a form of massage which is currently unrecognised by most traditional western medicines. Ili ili stones training focuses on personal development to facilitate your healing skills as a practitioner, rather than a formal qualification like Certificate IV.
Can I register with the major health funds?
Since the introduction of the National Training Package system and the amalgamation of many of the massage associations, the criteria for massage association membership and insurance has changed. To obtain a provider number from most health insurance companies a two year Diploma of Remedial Massage is required.
Will I get a certificate?
Yes. After completing the training you will be issued with a certificate and academic transcript noting your hours of training.
Do I need experience?
No. Our teaching method includes a demonstration and practice session format with a high level of teacher support which works for all levels of experience.
