Hot Stone Therapy
One Day Hot Stone Therapy Diploma course
An American massage therapist, Mary Nelson, was the founder of the original hot stone therapy which she called 'LaStone'. Mary wanted to continue her therapy practice while easing her stiff and painful wrist joints. Using the stones to massage achieved this goal, while also enhancing the massage treatment.
Use of the stones is much more than a tool for the therapist; the warmth of the stones is truly comforting and they connect us with Mother Earth, grounding our vibrations.
