LaStone Therapy is a specific type of massage using heated and chilled stones to promote circulation, detoxification and reduce inflammation in the body.  The physiological benefits of alternating temperatures on the body have long been scientifically and medically proven.  This "vascular gymnastics" of the circulatory system assists the body in self-healing.  LaStone therapy creates a sedative and re-energizing response in the body.

Good communication is essential to effective massage.  It is important that you discuss with your therapist what you would like to achieve.  Clarify any areas that need to be focused on or avoided as well as pressure and depth.  It is best to do this before the treatment begins so that you can relax and enjoy your massage.
