Creative Stone

Combining the hot stones with massage creates amazing results. LaStone and Massage Créatif compliments each other beautifully and carry the same energy and purposes.

The two therapies can be combined in several ways, depending on the needs and requirements of the client.

One way is to use the hot stones to warm the tissue before the massage commences, simply adding another step to the Massage Créatif. Warming the tissue makes the hands-on work easier for the therapist and allows her to work much deeper after a shorter time of tissue manipulation. Heating the muscles makes them relax, which gives the therapist easier access to the tight knots and tense muscles.

The stones also provide a great massaging tool, which with less effort can go deeply into the muscles and reach the deeper layers. It is gentle on the hands and fingers of the therapist, allowing her to work for a longer time before tiring herself. Using the hot stones feels like a pair of very warm hands massaging your muscles.

If there is a particularly troubled area, then including a cold stone can provide that last touch needed to fully let a muscle release tension and return to normality.

For the Creative Lastone, the number of stones used can vary from 4 to 12, depending on how much deep work is needed. The fewer stones included, the more flowing and uninterrupted the massage will be.

Please note that the Creative LaStone is an extended version of Massage Créatif, adding certain elements from the LaStone therapy and combining the two into a symbiosis. It gives you a taste of what a LaStone treatment feels like, but doesn’t replace it in any manner. The energy and flow of the massage is that of the Massage Créatif, enhancing it with the stone advantages and energies.
