The Art & Practice of Stone Massage
Award Winner The Art & Practice of Stone Massage

Licensed massage therapist, Meade Steadman, illustrates how to incorporate the use of hot and cold stones in full-body massage. In this comprehensive massage video, Meade, who is also an instructor, demonstrates how to perform the strokes (petrissage, effleurage, and edging) on the different muscle groups from head to toe, while explaining the physiological effects of thermal and cryo stone therapy, which include stimulating circulation, relaxing musculature, and reducing inflammation. The use of stones for healing dates back thousands of years. In this beautifully filmed video on massage therapy, Meade discusses the history of stone massage, selection of stones, placement of Chakra stones, and preparatory grounding for focus, as well as equipment, client comfort levels, and contraindications/precautions for such conditions as heart problems and pregnancy.
