Stone massage has a certain interest for me. Warm stones, plus the massage techniques (and please, if you're doing this, go to either a professional or someone you love and trust). There's an interesting video clip that demonstrates a basic technique for doing this. The full video can be purchased here: The Art & Practice of Stone Massage - Video and includes a much more detailed explanation as well as history of the practice. It can be combined with Swedish massage as well as done with hot or cold stones- while I personally prefer the warmth, I know there are some that don't. There are different types of stones that can be used, edges, smooth ones, rounded. So many ways to relax! And this time of year as we move closer to holiday stresses and tensions, when will we find a better time to look into this?
