Involves the use of heated and cooled stones, Geo-Thermo-Therapy, applied to the body to bring about relief to tired and sore muscles, alleviating chronic and acute symptoms that many of us deal with on a daily basis. Thermo-Therapy makes LaStone a success, by combining its principles with the traditional healing practices of the Native American Indians. LaStone Therapy capitalises on these practices with a modern approach.
Basalt and marble stones are used as tools to provide hot and cold ‘messages’ to the body. This ‘vascular gymnastics’ for the circulatory system assists the body’s self-healing process. LaStone Therapy applies this principle throughout its training and practices. It is a massage treatment that goes beyond the normal parameters of therapy as we have previously known.

Clinically it is the application during massage therapy of heated stones with alternating cooled stones for a deep penetrating effect on our physiological systems. Applying different temperatures on the body helps bring about natural healing responses, known to have been used throughout many ancient cultures. LaStone Therapy uses alternating temperatures to bring about healing, balance and rejuvenation. Furthermore, it aids the balancing of all levels of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual energies, often unlocking emotions and memories that may be latent in the body, and thus facilitating remembrance and acknowledgement. The therapy brings about alternately sedative and energizing responses to the body. Clients love the potent charge they receive in the treatment. They seem to be in a reverie or deep meditative state by the end of the massage.
