We use the original La Stone Massage therapy with the basalt stones originating from Arizona. The use of stones for healing purposes has been used for thousands of years, however in the last two decades it has become very popular thanks to the founder of La Stone, Mary Nelson who has created and structured the treatment. The treatment includes placing warm stones in specific key areas under the body, covering them with a soft towel and kneading muscles with the stones to relieve tension and unknot muscle spasms. The treatment promotes circulation, metabolism and eases muscle stiffness. Chilled marble stones are sometimes used, they create a dramatic movement of fluids within the body.
