With this instructional stone massage DVD, you'll learn the art of stone massage from a team of professional instructors led by Pat Mayrhofer, a massage therapist, educator and cosmetologist with over 39 years of experience. Hydrotherapy and the application of heat to the body to produce therapeutic effects can be traced to ancient times. Adding stones to your massage protocol adds a medium for the application of heat and/or cold to the body. Your clients will experience the added benefit of heat and you'll save your wrists and hands because you're sharing the work with the stones. The combination of the heat from the stones, the essential oils, and the soothing massage action of stones and oils produces a deep and penetrating state of relaxation and well being - both for you and your clients.
