Since ancient times, the people of Hawaii have used hot stones for both physical and spiritual healing. Using basalt stones--fine-grained, high-density volcanic rocks with an exceptional ability to store heat--hot stone massage not only dispels tensions and soothes the soul but also enhances lymph flow, removes toxins, and fortifies the immune system. The treatment causes blood vessels to dilate, leading to improved circulation and consequently improved oxygen, nutrient, antibody, and protective cell supply to the area of the body under the stones and is extremely effective for joint problems, back pain, and sore muscles. Beyond the strictly physical benefits, the massage also stimulates the meridians and chakras, gently dissipating energetic blockages. This book provides step-by-step, fully illustrated instructions for treatments for each area of the body. The authors then include details on the specific healing powers of 54 gemstones, showing how to further enhance the benefits of hot stone massage with gemstone chakra treatment. For instance, in facial massage, working with amethyst can alleviate headaches and help heal skin blemishes. They also describe the therapeutic benefits of several base and essential oils and recommend specific combinations for hot stone massage. The power of the stones, the warmth of the treatment, and the massage itself unite in this holistic therapy to provide deep relaxation and calm that recharges the body and soul.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book integrates two long-used types of stone-enhanced therapy. The authors offer clear explanations of the chakras, the meridians, and the stones themselves. Hot Stone and Gem Massage will encourage practitioners and individuals to work with both the physical stones and the spiritual qualities they express, making possible the next step of realizing that a deeply beneficial relationship is possible between ourselves and the mineral realm."
* Robert Simmons, coauthor of The Book of Stones and author of Moldavite: Starborn Stone of Transforma *

Full color pictures are included showing the layouts and the more difficult techniques." * Dr. Tami Brady, TCM Reviews, Sep 2008 *
