Why have LaStone Therapy instead of traditional massage?
- A massage and a deep tissue
LaStone therapy changes you on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. LaStone balances. If you are sluggish, it invigorates, if you are unhealthy, it helps your body to become healthy or at least puts it in a position to fight illness more efficiently. If your immune system is weak, it will be boosted, and if you are feeling down, the therapy will bring you back up.
The therapy makes you feel amazing, and it takes you through feelings you didn’t know you could experience. A true LaStone therapy treatment is a challenge to the body, a rest for the mind and a journey for the spirit. Much of a LaStone treatment can be explained scientifically, but much of it is left to the individual and the universe.
What is new and totally unique is the delivery of the LaStone treatment. LaStone combines massage, thermotherapy, energy work and healing work, and it is all delivered through the very ‘alive’ gifts of mother earth – the stones.
LaStone is the ultimate dichotomy, the furthest of extremes : hot and cold, basalt and marble, sun and moon, male and female, yin and yang, black and white, relaxing and invigorating, sedating and euphoric, active and passive, vasodilating and vasoconstricting, Mother earth and Father sky.
LaStone therapy is the ultimate
treatment. It is often known as the ‘Last One therapy’, or
the last word in therapy because it is so many things. It can be any therapy
that you know but delivered by way of a stone – a hot and/or cold
LaStone is a multifaceted
technique designed to benefit client and therapist at once. The therapeutic
potential of this treatment goes beyond ordinary massage. The physiological
benefits of alternating heat and cold to the body have been successfully
and medically proven. This unique form of massage utilises 54 hot stones
and 29 frozen stones. Deep relaxation is only one of the benefits.
LaStone produces alternating sedative and energising responses. Clients love the potent recharge they receive from the treatment. LaStone therapy goes beyond the physical experience of massage, and enters deeper dimensions of relaxation, health and well being, creating a positive approach to ‘Body-Mind-Spirit’ philosophy.
To start the treatment, you will receive energy work to enable you to receive the treatment at its best. The combination of the energy work and the chemical response within the body during a LaStone treatment demonstrates the flexibility and the balance of the treatment. It is at once deep and remedial, as well as healing, releasing and refreshing.
LaStone works the whole of
you on every level for the entire duration of the treatment.
