Hot Basalt Stones & Cool Marble Stones
Basalt Stones - These are perfect for providing penetrating heat into the muscles and connective tissues throughout the body. They are very healing and produce a sedative effect on our nervous system. Hot stones promote deep relaxation, encourages blood flow, relieves chronic pain, and reduces stress. Plus it feels so darn good!
Marble Stones - You might be wondering "Why in the world would I want cold stones applied to my body"? Marble stones are a complement to the hot Basalt stones and create balance within our bodies. They deliver a cooling sensation that is actually quite pleasant to experience. Marble stones also promote blood flow, are a powerful decongestant, is tonifying & strengthening to several body systems, especially the immune system, and interrupts the pain-spasm-pain cycle. We use these stones in conjunction with hot stones for an effect that is simply amazing- rejuvenation of muscle tissues, reduction of inflammation & swelling, and profound reduction in pain. Delicious!
If you haven't jumped on the CBD Oil bandwagon yet or have felt reluctant to try out a topical application, we invite you to give it a try. It's wonderful! The CBD oil we use is legal in all 50 states and does not contain constituents that give you a "high". CBD oils possess anti-inflammatory & neuroprotective properties that our bodies readily accept. Since cannabinoids do not damage our liver or central nervous system, it is a safe drug-free alternative to NSAIDS (ibuprofen, acetaminophen, etc.) and other over-the-counter pain relievers. It is safe for children as well!
