WHAT IS A HOT STONE MASSAGE TREATMENT?
An American massage therapist, Mary Nelson, was the founder of the original hot stone therapy which she called 'LaStone'. This system enables therapists to continue to deliver massage whilst easing stiff and painful wrist joints. Using both hot and cold stones enhances the whole massage treatment and the use of the stones is much more than a tool for the therapist, as the warmth of the stones is truly comforting and relaxing and they also connect us with Mother Earth, grounding our vibrations.
