Stone Therapy
By ElkWoman

Has anyone had a session of La Stone Therapy massage? I know they use marble and basalt stones. What are the properties of these stones? And if you had a treatment what was it like please? just curious

Hi Elk Woman,
Stone therapy is a type of thermotherapy using deep penetrating heat from smooth basalt rocks and alternating cold from marble stones. It is an ancient healing art that was just recently rediscovered. Its modern form came in 1994 when a massage therapist from Tucson, AZ brought it back to life. Since then it very quickly became the most influential and demanded treatment in the SPA industry in North America and had taken many forms. Physiological benefits of alternating temperatures to the body have long been scientifically and medically proven.

It goes beyond the physical experience of a typical massage, and enters deeper dimensions of relaxation, health and well being.

From what I understand, it improves the work of lymphatic and immune systems, normalizes body functions, and assists one's body in self healing. It also affects the sensory system which stimulates production of neuro-chemicals that brings sense of well-being.

The ultimate goal of the therapy is relaxation that will bring balance and alleviate chronic and acute problems and I would like to use this as an added tool in my healing work. So next year, I am hoping to enter a program to learn more and become certified.

Basalt: interestingly, Basalt is an igneous volcanic rock and is often used in healing sessions to boost the reproductive system and to enhance fertility. Basalt promotes balance in emotions therefore it is a good stone to dissipate negative energy.

Marble: is a familiar stone in both Naturopathy and Homeopathy. Often sought as a stone of "protection," and used as a talisman. It is said Marble helps to enhance serenity, bring guidance and order to disarray. An excellent stone to balance the heart chakra therefore increasing calmness and harmony. Also good to use during meditation. Hope this helps.

Thanks Lotusbud, i'm also interested in learning this type of massage
