    This is the site my massage therapist uses. I don't know if it's the cheapest or best, just know it's what she uses!

    GOOD LUCK

    on the hot stone massage, I can remember at one time when they made me feel good.

    now, they make me feel worse.

    ENJOY THEM!

    I had a hot stone massage last year and the stones were heated in a crock pot. I laughed and asked was that really a crock pot and she was like, yeah it works great and does the same thing as stone warmer. (the fancy stone warmer was broken)

    She also said you can use any smooth rocks. So go looking around your yard and throw them in your crock pot and youve got a hot stone massge for free!! Just supply the oil

    Hi Liz, I can try to google it. Thanks everyone for your suggestions.

    I went to the craft store and bought a bag of flat smooth stones...

    I am going to try the crockpot idea since I have a small one I don't use anymore...I have a bottle of Aromatherapy massage oil from Bath and Body works...Black Currant Vanilla - I love the smell!!

    So I am gonna give this a try, I will remember what Wolfsong wrote and just give this a try on my legs. They just burn and ache so much! My ankles and the tops of my feet are hurting a lot lately, I seem to notice when I am lying in bed relaxing, my legs and feet are tensed with my feet pointing up stretching into position! I dont even notice it until I want to go to sleep and I have to force my feet to relax! Grrrrr!

    Thank to all!
    I will let you know how this works for us!

    Hello Lori.....MiMi in NC....so how are things going for you at work......I wondered about this....I do hope you are doing ok...

    I hope your stones help.....I have one of these....but I do not use mine much....the stones are really BIG....I got mine at Kohl's one year after Christmas sale.....

    I can not say that they really helped me.....but I probably did not use them enough to really know.....kinda a hassle to heat them and then use them....or it was for me....I hope they work for you though...

    Take care and good luck...

    Hi LoriBasting

    Hot stone massage uses a combination of warmed stones and massage techniques to relax tense muscles, relieve pain and stiffness and improve circulation. This treatment can be used for ailments like muscular aches, arthritic conditions and autoimmune disorders.


    There are many massage schools from where you can purchase the stones and oils for the Hot stone massage. I have recently purchased it from the Institute Of East West Wellness. You can contact them via http://instituteofeastwestwellness.com/ .
