The original Hot Cold Stone Massage,La Stone Therapy is a great Holistic energy Bodywork.Ideal to add to ones Man Health after Exercise/Human Longevity routine.It is the original and best of all the complementary health Hot Stone wannabes going around the Spa circuit these days.
Created by Mary Nelson in Tuscon Arizona 1993 it is based on traditional Zen Philosophies and Native American Rituals.Courses are located worldwide for licensed massage therapist to part take. I myself did my training here in Toronto and traveled to Wisconsin in 2002 to take more advanced training.
In the Spring of 2013 I will be opening my satellite Men's Spa on Tipperary Street in the town of Shediac near Moncton area,on the French Acadian Shore of Le Beau Basin. The local scene is ready for it and the competition is Non existent and the marketing potential high. I will divide my time between Toronto the first 1/2 of the month and the Shediac Moncton New Brunswick area the last 1/2 of the month.First visit confirmed to be May 20-30 2013
Using geo-thermal-therapy the Hot Basalt & Cold Marble Stones produce a vascular gymnastics of flushing blood in and out the tissue producing a very soothing therapeutic sports massage modality effect of deep tissue massage without the rip&gouge.
Basalt Stones with its high Iron content hold and retain the heat the best and the longest of all stones,and Quarried Marble hold and retain the Cold the best and longest.
It is in my professional opinion the top experience to both give and receive, due to it being go relaxing and grounding.
For the client the "lights truly go out" on this one and with the placing of the stones on various areas bodywork continues on an area while I work on another(i.e. the spinal layout ,where a row of hot and cold stones are laid out in a vertical line covered with a pillowcase and then laid upon)by the client.While I work the front side of the body.
A really worthwhile experience to give as it is to receive.
