I am writing concerning a clarification in the article in the Mind, Body, Spirit section of the newspaper, printed Dec. 1 entitled "La Stone."
Before a LaStone therapist glides a cool rock along the sides of a client's spine, she first warms the client by massaging basalt stones heated at 120 to 140 degrees into the tissue. Three heated massage "passes" completely heat the body. Additional heated stones are placed in the client's hands and also at the feet to always keep the client warm. The cool rocks are once again applied, then back with the heated stones, another pass with the cool stones, then the heated stones, and then hot and cool stones together. The effect is both stimulating and relaxing. It is important to note that during the intake process I make sure that the client knows he/she is always in control of the temperatures.
This article was beautifully written by Janet Cook. This massage is an experience and very difficult to articulate. She captured the "essence" of the massage. The photographer (Jim Semlor) is excellent.
I also want to thank you for the Mind, Body, Spirit addition to the newspaper. It is an idea whose time has come. Thank you.
