As you lay upon the Sound Wave Deep Relaxation Table, your body becomes an integral part of the enchanting, melodic sounds emanating beneath you, which gently reach your cells and reverberate through the skeletal structure. These sound wave frequencies further the process of mental and physical relaxation increasing the body’s healing response. Science has shown that all human brains are receptive to the modulating relaxation influences of these selected sound frequencies. In essence, you are experiencing a form of “internal massage” throughout your body, while your brain wave patterns begin to mellow, relax and re-organize with assistance from state-of-the-art Bose headphones.
Repeated treatments with this technique have been proven to calm the inner mind and actually return brain wave patterns to a normal, healthy state after periods of intense, negative stress experiences. It takes a Zen Master about 45 minutes to reach a deep state of serenity. A Sound Stone treatment can often get you there in about 10 to 15 minutes. Anecdotal reports indicate that unique and powerful brain wave entrainment melodies can actually neutralized the negative effects of some psychotic drugs on the human brain.
By the end of the session, you are nearly speechless, entranced, enchanted and completely relaxed. Combined with the highly effective BeStone Thermotherapy Massage method, you are ensured of receiving an amazingly effective, incredible massage experience unlike any other.
Those who have experienced a good, routine, traditional "hands only" massage most likely have no idea what an authentic, quality Hot Stone Massage feels like. Hot Stone Massage or "Geo-Thermal Therapy" is the clinical application to the body of heated Basalt massage stones to bring about a chemical release within the body’s systems. Sometimes chilled white Marble Stones are used alternately with the heated stones. Adjusting temperatures in bodywork to aid clients in healing is very beneficial. Geo-Thermal Stone Therapy is a contemporary approach to the use of alternating temperatures in massage. This multifaceted technique is designed to benefit both the client and therapist at once. The therapeutic potential of this treatment goes beyond measure. The “vascular gymnastics” that is achieved by the use of alternating hot and cold stones in a massage aids the circulatory system, endocrine system and digestive systems in assisting the body in self-healing and goes beyond what bare hands can achieve with traditional body therapies. [Please note, there are many therapists and massage businesses that offer "stone massage" but as in the restaurant business there can be a 1000 different pizzas offerings and perhaps 20 are truly worthy of being consumed. This is why we say we offer a "gourmet massage" experience.]
Due to the superiority in the quality of true hot stone massage experience, we have decided years ago to focus on hot and cold stone therapy for the majority of our body massage services. Yes, we do offer "hands only" massage when requested. However all of our stone massages do in fact include a fair amount of hand massage interspersed with the stones. We are NOT just setting, placing inactive stones upon your body like many of our competitors do. We actually massage with our hands AND the stone simultaneously. It's a bit of magic that do.... so pick up the phone, make an appointment and check us out.
