                        Winter 2017 

Imagine a Warm Stone Massage...

This winter in particular has been a great time to hibernate – so much cold and rainy weather!  Warm Stone Massage is a great way to counteract the penetrating cold and damp of winter. 

Now - visualize yourself face down on a comfortable, supportive massage table, draped in a flannel sheet and blanket. Passive warm stones build a gentle heat as they rest on layers of linen on your back to warm the muscles alongside your spine.  Oil is applied to your arms and legs, and a warm stone glides over muscles that have been slightly tensed against the chill of the season.  You begin to let go, relaxing and sinking into the table.  As your muscles release, focused massage is done to the muscles to support complete relaxation and increase circulation.  And now that your back has been warmed up by the passive heat of the stones, oil is applied, and your muscles can completely surrender to the glide of the warm stones integrated with firm-contact Esalen massage.

The second half of the session, you are face up on the table, this time with passive warm stones resting on your sternum and down your midline, atop layers of linen.  Your core receives more gentle heat as your limbs receive massage and warmth from the active stones.  The session is 75 or 90 minutes in length. 

Acupressure, Reiki or AcuReiki Essence© can be added to the session, which means the session would be 90 minutes (add $5 to add the use of essential oils).

Warm Stone Massage is grounding, calming and profoundly relaxing, just what is needed in cold, rainy, windy weather.  In terms of Ayurvedic constitutional types, it is balancing for all three: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.   (To find out your constitutional type (pikruti), please click here.)

Other benefits include:

  • Relief from muscular stiffness, tension and pain;
  • Increased circulation and a boost to metabolism;
  • Increase in joint flexibility to encourage ease of movement; and 
  • Reduction of anxiety and stress.

Just something to be aware of:  Warm Stone Massage requires that you be healthy because it is a heat treatment, so there is a fairly long list of contraindications, most of which are just common sense. (Please click here to learn more about Warm Stone Massage and possible contraindications.)

I have been offering Warm Stone Massage since 2002, and I look forward to doing so every winter and early spring, because it is such an effective and wonderful session.  I invite you to experience this profoundly relaxing session, allowing yourself some quality “down” time to rest and rejuvenate as part of your winter hibernation!

Take care,

Jan Fiore
