Everybody Must Get Stone Massage

If you've never experienced a stone massage therapy, you're missing out.

Made from Basalt, they are formed from hot lava spills as a volcano erupts. And because they have been exposed to the elements for many years they are said to retain heat far better than many other materials.

They are heated and are used as an extension of the therapist’s hands and are swept across the body, massaging away tension. They also direct energy flow in the body to areas of blockage, restoring physical and mental balance, and stimulate the circulation and metabolism.

I use stones in my practice, but not to lay people out on and walk away. I use my stones as an additional tool for loosening especially tight muscles, as a warming aid for clients with cold hands, and as a means of softening and warming an area, such as the low back, before I work on it.
