Cold Stones For Migraine Relief

Headaches are one of the most common complaints we hear about, migraines are one of the most debilitating form of a headache. Personally, I am open to pretty much any treatment that claims migraine relief. I have tried acupressure, acupuncture, aromatherapy (Migraine Miracle is awesome!) however, I have not yet tried cold stone massage therapy treatment.

As a migraine sufferer, I am well aware of the relief a cold pack can provide. Massage therapy combined with cold therapy can be extremely helpful in dealing with migraine pain. Migraines are not only painful, but they are stressful. Massage will help calm the nervous system down which helps the body naturally relax. Cold therapy will help decrease the pressure felt by the excess blood flow to the head/brain which causes so much pain. 

Adding in complimentary treatments such as aromatherapy and trigger point massage will increase the all around benefits.

What Is In Your Manicure and Pedicure Bowls?

Variety is the key to keep customers happy and coming back.  Adding a little extra something special to your manicure soak or pedicure soak can make a huge difference!  Your client will feel extra pampered and luxurious by adding something as simple as gemstones. Just add the gemstones or stones to cover the bottom of your manicure or pedicure bowl.  
There are such beautiful colored gemstones that not only offer a eye popping, look but some have healing properties or interesting characteristics.  

For example, take the Green Aventurine Gemstone. Widely viewed as an all around "luck" stone, Aventurine is more specifically known for stimulating dreaming and helping those who use it find balance and a stronger personal identity. Green Aventurine is particularly revered as a stone that can ease anxiety and calm emotion, perhaps helping to whether stress and worries, helping you to keep a positive outlook.

Another great look to add to the manicure soak is beautiful glass manicure bowl.  The gemstones shine through the glass bowl, looking beautiful and providing the client with a peaceful and serene setting. Who wouldn't want to be pampered by such beauty!

The Stone Age

We are all familiar with the hot stone massage, but not everyone is familiar with the numerous other ways stones can be incorporated into a massage. Basalt Stones are the perfect addition to any massage! The benefits that Basalt Stones will add to a massage experience are undeniable!

With multiple ways to use the Basalt Stone and countless benefits it brings to the mind and body, there is no question your clients will thank you for incorporating this inexpensive addition to their massage!

The Large Basalt Stone is most effective when direct pressure of the stone is applied to the areas where the client has a lot of dense muscle, such as the pectorals, thighs and arms, as well as high energy or high stress regions of the body. Basalt Stones are essential to the healing and stimulation of damaged or weary muscle and tissue. As a massage therapist, Basalt Stones will give you the ability to deliver a deep, penetrating warmth to the musculature of the lower back and upper sacral region, providing your clients with instant comfort and relief. For the best results, the flat of the Basalt Stone should be used for effleurage and petrissage and for deep tissue work the edges of the stone should be used.

The use of a Single Basalt Stone is not only beneficial to the body but beneficial to the mind as well! Basalt Stones are known to enhance relaxation, harmony and rejuvenation. They are said to alleviate stress and negative energy.

Basalt Stones have an amazing ability to retain heat and can be heated several different ways. My favorite is by heating the stone by running it under hot water and then wrapping it a heated towel. I also love to use my stone warmer and never do I go with out my Stone Warming Pouch, no matter how I heat my stone!
