What Is Sacred Stone Therapy?
"Therapy is only as good as the therapist"
Sacred Stone Therapy integrates heated and chilled sea stones into traditional massage therapy, based on ancient Ayurvedic principles. Warm, textured, velvety stones are laid under, around and on top of the client in the beginning, then, each part of the body receives traditional massage using warm, aromatic oils. Heated stones are glided along the muscles to iron out tension and provide a deep release. The texture of some stones can be gently exfoliating. Chilled stones are glided around the face, alternated with warm stones to create a rosy glow. Warm, flat, sea stones are laid upon the spine as the back of the legs are massaged. This can be used as an adjunct to deep tissue release or in energy healing, depending on the techniques chosen by the therapist.
The techniques have been thoughtfully designed to bring the body, mind and soul back into balance and renew the sweetness of life in a world where people are driving while eating their lunch. Sacred Stone Therapy is anxiety-reducing, nurturing, healing and restorative. Each session lasts about 75 minutes. Therapists can charge anywhere between $90-$150 for this therapy, depending on the socioeconomic status of the area, and the experience and credentials of the therapist.
The manual has many detailed pictures and is very easy to understand. The "Classroom Demo" and "Concepts & Theory" DVDs are also very comprehensive and simple to follow. After you pass the course, you will be awarded your CE hours (transcripts) from the NCBTMB and a professional, beautiful wall certificate.
