LaStone, My Story

Season greetings and reflections

All my stones and crystals, on the floor
enjoying their midwinter vacation.

With Winter Solstice yesterday, Christmas and New Year coming up soon, it is time for my stones to be on a small vacation, and for myself and my family to celebrate the season.

My stones have done an incredible job these last months after I started working at élément in Paris. Many people have been introduced to stone massage. None had tried the hot combined with the cold before and they love it.

I am learning so much from working with different people and expectations. Many of my new clients have a high body-awareness and can really feel the difference from the massage.

Several are highly sensitive to the more energetic and spiritual aspect of the work. For them a massage is not just a physical manipulation, but also an emotional and spiritual experience.

One client, instantly booked one massage a week after his first treatment. One aspect of the stone massage he really enjoyed is how mind and body connect during the treatment with the stones.

He could really feel how the stones were charged and asked if they were magnetic. He even mentioned to me just before the holidays that my stones needed to be recharged. It is really touching to receive such comments and acknowledgement from an “outsider”.

One amusing situation is when I am asked about the stones and the background for the massage I give. Some think LaStone is from Denmark, since I’m Danish. Most find the Native American aspect fascinating and all love the deep work of the proper massage therapy that they receive. It is very hard to find the good deep style of massage in Paris, which is common in the US and elsewhere.

It is very humbling to work as a Hollow Bone and facilitate wellness in people. Especially when they really notice the energy work and small details. I look forward to exploring my stones further. To see what they can bring into people’s lives and what difference they make.

All the best wishes to you and your loved ones for the upcoming year.
May you prosper, live in love and happiness be on your path.

Thank you.
