What is Sacred Stone Therapy?
This treatment was originally called Sacred Stone Massage Therapy since 1999 when Karyn first brought the hot stone massage movement to the east coast. Since then, her students have changed the titles and the content, but Karyn teaches the original and authentic version of Sacred Stone Therapy in this course. Learning her techniques and philosophies will help remove stress and pain in your client’s physiology. Learn how to create powerful stone layouts and utilize gliding, spinning, edging and flipping techniques designed to calm the central nervous system, improve systemic detoxification, encourage better posture and reduce muscular tension. This hot stone therapy technique is unique and different because Karyn applies time-proven Ayurvedic, scientific modalities and theories which direct energy towards the “terminal ends” of the body, enliven the “earth-bound” chakra system, engages the natural intelligence of the body, awakens prana (life force) and renews the sweetness of life.
Using heated and chilled mineral composites of granite, feldspar, quartz and magnetite which are harvested locally, this treatment integrates traditional massage techniques, creatively blending science, physiology, anatomy, medicine and modern-day therapeutic touch with spirit, creating a very holistic and comprehensive way to perform hot stone therapy.
“Elements of The Great Earth for healing, massage and beauty are rooted in shila abhyanga, (shila – stone, abhy – to rub, anga – limb), and is Sanskrit for stone massage. Heated stone massage is a form of swedhana, meaning thermotherapy, a modality used during pancha karma. Pancha karma is a form of internal and external purification of the body, mind and soul using many ancient bodywork techniques and nutritional modalities from India. Every ingredient in the cosmos has a healing effect…every plant, flower, stone, leaf, bark, aroma and even vastu shastra (E.Indian Feng Shui)….we just need to learn how to use them properly. Ayurveda simply uses natural ingredients from the kitchen and the garden for healing. Breath, sleep, diet and yoga are the four pillars of nourishment for the body, mind and soul. Warm oil and sea stones on the skin are highly nourishing for the physiology and nervous system. Ayurveda gives importance to beauty because the body is a sacred temple of the soul. Heated and chilled stones can be used on the face to impart a radiant glow and the marmas (Marma is a Sanskrit word for “doorway” in the body) can be activated by firm pressure with small stones and crystals.” Dr. Naina Marballi
