What is Sacred Stone Massage?
Sacred Stone Massage is an ancient, enduring form of therapeutic bodywork using hot and cooled stones as extensions of the hand based on Ayurvedic principles. 

What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is India’s traditional system of medicine, which literally means “the science of long life.” Modalities include nutritional and lifestyle changes, Ayurvedic massage, herbs, yoga, meditation, mantra, mindfulness, sound, colour, crystals and aromatherapy.

Why Sacred Stone Therapy?

Sacred Stone therapy is unique in that it combines an energetic understanding of the stones and the human bodymind to facilitate healing and is based on sound scientific principles. Hot stones sooth and release sore muscles. Most stones contain magnetic character, which reorganizes the structure of the human energy body and polarizes imbalances within the physical body. The weighted warmth of the stones creates a deep relaxation and grounds the client.

Why use Ayuveda?

Ayurveda is the most ancient system of medicine known to mankind; it is a fully holistic approach to living. Ayurveda teaches everything in life is interconnected; there is no split between body and mind. This ancient system of healing empowers us with information regarding the balance of the body, mind and spirit. Ayuveda has had five thousand years to perfect its massage therapies with Shila abyanga (stone massage) just one of the highly specialized treatments available.

Ayurvedic massage often incorporates the use of marma point therapy which are vital junctions of the body. These marma points are connected with the nervous system, linking the body with the brain thus linking the body with the mind. If the marma points are blocked, the nervous system can not send clear signals to the brain. When the marma points are clear and uncongested, clear thoughts and good  health follow.

Ayurveda also uses specialized base oils and essential oils tailored for treatment of individual body/mind types and treating inbalances. The healing potential of aromatherapy is magnified by heated stone compresses and water as with stone healing, aromatherapy activates the earth element within the body. Consequently these are a perfect union.
