Do not mistake LaStone® for a ’hot stone massage treatment’.
It is the correct combination of heated and cool stones (Geo-Thermo-Therapy principle) that is our trademark. LaStone® treatments are tailor made and prescriptive to the client. The therapeutic potential of this treatment goes beyond measure.
• The promotion of a natural healing response within the body
• Thermotherapy brings about healing, balance and rejuvenation
• The use of warm basalt stones helps to create relaxation through a combination of stone placement and massage
• The treatment helps to restore balance on a physical level. Alternating between hot and cold flushes the body of toxins, cleanses the lymphatic system
• A combination of temperature through massage helps to tone muscles
• The application of cold temperatures helps to relieve muscular tension
• The application of cold helps to reduce inflammation, scar tissue and promotes mobility
• Alternating temperatures helps to release emotions
• LaStone® principles can work on a spiritual energy level
• It goes beyond the physical experience of typical massage, and enters deeper dimensions of relaxation, health and well being, creating a positive approach to ’Body-Mind-Spirit’ philosophy.
LaStone® treatments help to alleviate chronic and acute problems that many of us deal with on a daily basis.
Different stones are used during the treatment. It depends on the specific needs of the client which stones are used, what temperature, how long and how many will be used.
These are the main ones:
Basalt: hot, yang, male, earth
Marble: cold, yin, female, moon
Jade: warm/cool/room temperature, heaven
Most treatments include a spinal stone layout, which comprises of the client lying on their back with rows of stones placed next to the spine. The alternating temperatures of the stones will do most of the work needed on the back before the massage even starts.
The heat gently relaxes and soothes tense strained muscles, and the cool reduces inflammation from overwork, driving, computer work and the general overworking of the back due to "life".
The temperatures of the Spinal Layout combined with those of the Chakra Stones also affect the internal organs stimulating metabolism and working deep within the body. The stones will work their magic by helping you to feel grounded and calm, so the treatment will have a much more profound effect.
Hot Basalt and cold Marble stones, or just warm Jade stones for relaxation, you will feel the difference.
