It heals and balances the body, is believed to bring prosperity, aid with depression, cure headaches, bring luck and good fortune. These are believed to take place by having the stone against your bare skin.

The unique properties of these gemstones allow them to be either heated or cooled, depending on the desired outcome of our session. When heated stones are applied to the body, they melt away the underlying tension and the body receives heat from the stones. When cool stones are applied to the body, we get a very different reaction. The body SENDS heat from itself TO THE STONE to heat it. This creates an amazing healing effect due to the blood vessels constricting and the circulation increasing. The result is an energetic balancing effect that will keep you feeling great long after your treatment.
