LaStone® the original Hot and Cold Stone massage
Relaxes and revitalises muscle groups whilst allowing the body to relax and the mind to wander.
Warm basalt stones are used within this treatment to relax nurture and nourish tight and stressed muscles allowing heat to penetrate deep into the muscles. Marble and Jade stones are used to help flush toxins and melt muscular tension. The treatment is sealed in a unique LaStone® manner.
With LaStone®, the stones are the medium and the varying temperatures are the massage. The physiological benefits of alternating hot and cold to the body have long been scientifically and medically proven. LaStone® Therapy administers multi-level relief with unerring elegance, creating therapeutically healing and re-energizing responses in the body.
LaStone® mixes on traditional practices with a current approach. Basalt and marble and jade 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. LaStone® Therapy administers this principle with exquisite elegance.
What Happens ...
Your LaStone® therapy begins with gentle stretches and massage to warm up the body's muscle tissue. Whilst you sit up the therapist places two rows of warm/cool stones on the treatment table in alignment with both sides of your spine. The therapist covers them with linen to protect you from the heat, and then assists as you lay back down on them.
Then we place stones of varying weights on the body's key energy channels, including the seven main chakras. Pebble-sized warm stones are placed between your toes and medium-sized flat stones are placed in your palms. The therapist also uses both hot and cool stones as an extension of their hands while performing massage.
Alternating between heat and cold both stimulates and relaxes the circulatory system, which is very detoxifying for the body. In cooperation with heated stones, chilled jade stones create a dramatic movement of fluids within the body, leaving you feeling relaxed, revived and re-charged.
