An authentic LaStone treatment instantly connects one with the blessings Mother Earth offers us daily; bringing warmth, cooling, vibrations and sound through the application of the stones to the body. This is applied by honoring the breath and the unique energies of the soul. Clients love the potent recharge they receive form this experience as they walk away feeling balanced, renewed and energized.”
The therapeutic potential of this treatment goes beyond measure. The physiological benefits of alternating hot and cold to the body have long been scientifically and medically proven. The stones are the medium and the hot and cold temperatures are the message. This “vascular gymnastics” of the circulatory system assists the body in self-healing.
The stones we use are designed specifically for this massage and applied in a ceremonial fashion, honoring the healing and comforting energy of the Earth. Over fifty stones are used during a treatment. Different sizes and shapes correspond to body parts such as hand and toe stones.
When heated, the stones are oiled and used along with Swedish massage to generate more heat and penetrate deeper in the muscles. Chilled marble stones are used later in the treatment for balance. The use of hand-crafted, polished, white marble stones to deliver cooling temperatures is a natural balance to the dark, ocean tumbled basalt stones used to warm the body.
A La Stone session can be 55 minutes or 80 minutes. Chakra balancing and a spinal layout of stones are arranged for placement to soothe and ease muscle tension. The benefits of heated and chilled stones for therapeutic results in chronic and acute situations take relaxation and promotion of restoring tissue to a whole new level.
