Massage Stone Therapy Set
Our therapeutic massaging stones come in two sets:
Hot stone therapy is known for its deeply soothing and relaxing effects, a wonderful addition to therapeutic massage. It's used to help you relax and ease tense muscles and damaged tissues throughout the body.
Place the basalt stones in boiling water or a steamer for 15 minutes, or until heated. The stones can be used in two ways: they can be placed on top of a towel along the back to heat the chakras of the body, or used directly on the skin during massage.
Cold stone therapy is a powerful decongestant, pushing fluid and wastes out of overworked, chronically tense, or inflamed tissues. In cooperation with heated stones, chilled marble stones create a dramatic movement of fluids within the body. Cold offers a challenge to the body, so it is strengthening the immune system.
You can cool your marble stones in a variety of ways: refrigerators or freezers work well, or you can fill a bowl of water with ice and submerge stones for a few minutes.
Cleaning your stones:
Wash them with a little soap and water and after they dry, moisturize them with a little bit of carrier massage oil to extend their lives.
Cold stones should not be left on the skin for longer than ten minutes because marble can "burn" the skin if proper precautions are not met. We recommended a good carrier massage oil be used prior to both hot and cold stone massages.
