LaStone Massage Therapy

What is LaStone®?   — the original hot and cold stone therapy

  • It is the science of the stones

LaStone challenges the circulatory and lymphatic systems, which will reduce inflammation and  congestion of body fluids.

This is achieved by alternating stones of  various temperatures to the body; resulting in a chemical response.

This is a “vascular gymnastics” which assists the body in self-healing.

  • It is the spirit of the stones

Chakra balancing, Energy work, toning with crystals and the stones blended with the science of thermal therapy benefits the client beyond measure. LaStone administers these principles and combines them with unerring elegance.

Why does LaStone work?

Circulation is rapidly changed within the practice of LaStone Therapy.  If circulation is increased, then so too is nutrition and the way that every cell in the body responds to the experience of the alternating temperatures being applied.

When using both heated and chilled stones in a massage there is an acceleration of blood, lymph, and digestive fluids within the body.

When you increase the blood flow through the skin, detoxification is increased,  supporting the liver, bowels, kidneys, lymphatic, and circulatory systems.

Isolating chilled/cool stones to an inflamed area will facilitate the removal of toxins and inflammation, encouraging a healing response deep within the body’s systems.
