I trained with LaStone way back in 2004, they are the leading training school in Geo-thermal therapy….not just any hot stone massage….the original and the best!
LaStone therapy is the application of Geo-thermal therapy through the use of deep penetrating heated basalt stones alternated with chilled marble stones to bring about a chemical release within the body’s systems. It is a contemporary approach to alternating temperatures in massage. Using different temperatures on the body assists healing and has been used for many years and is scientifically and medically proven. During a full body treatment hot and cool stones are applied to the body using a wonderful blend of jojoba, coconut and essential oils. The heat soothes and loosens tight muscles and aches and pains, the cool flushes away any toxins and reduces inflammation and swelling.
All LaStone treatments begin with a spinal layout, two rows of stones of stones placed either side of your spine, it feels wonderfully relaxing, almost melting away tension from the back muscles. The whole body is then massaged with the heated basalt stones, working to reduce tension, warming and nourishing the skin and generally just feeling utterly amazing. The cool stones are used to reduced inflammation and refresh the body, like ice cream on a hot day!
