Stone Medicine

In ancient times the ancestors of Native American tribes began to use stones for the body for wellness. Stone medicine introduces these traditions with heated and chilled stones, crystals and gem stones and the use of various animal ‘medicines’ (energies). The hot stones were gathered from sunny ocean shores and river banks.  These sun heated basalt stones were used to soften muscle tissue in combination with water dipped cool stones, to reduce inflammation and swelling.
 
Stone medicine treatments effect not only the physical body but the spiritual and emotional body as well. By clearing the body of unhealthy energies and reconnecting to mother earth grounding and balancing, the body’s natural ability to heal its self is established.
