What is a hot stone massage or LaStone® Therapy?

Benefits of Stone Massage

LaStone® Therapy is the original stone therapy treatment. It is a deeply relaxing treatment that combines massage therapy with the use of heated and chilled stones (geo-thermal therapy). The physiological benefits of alternating hot and cold to the body have long been scientifically and medically proven. The stones are the medium and the hot and cold temperatures are the message. This “vascular gymnastics” of the circulatory system assists the body in self-healing and returning to balance. An authentic LaStone® treatment administers this principle with unerring elegance; producing sedative and re-energizing responses to the body.  This treatment brings relief to stiff and sore muscles; resulting in alleviation of chronic and acute conditions that many of us deal with on a daily basis. LaStone® Therapy will leave you feeling balanced, renewed, and re-energized.

Lara Clement is a Registered Massage Therapist & holistic practitioner.  Lara worked in  a couple of spas and massage therapy clinics and while she loved the work she did she wanted to create something different – a different atmosphere and better calibre of service. The Self Centre Massage & Wellness Spa in Edmonton, ON is  known for providing high quality, reasonably priced services and  a ‘spa fusion’  relaxing environment.  Not too “Floofy”  and overpriced like many spas and not overly sterile like some clinics. We only hire highly trained therapists who graduate from a 2200 hour massage therapy program. We also love to take on one 2nd year practicum student at a time, and help them become the best. We focus on wellness,  healing & balance in a calm and soothing environment.
