Cleaning and Washing Your Stones for Hot Stone Massage
BE THOROUGH & SANITARY. Most hot stone professional warmers will have a removable liner. Remove all materials from the warmer and then remove the liner. Wash the liner first prior to relining with a new towel and clean stones.
Stones must be individually washed in between each session, as shown here in this visual instructor demonstration video.
Use “grease cutting” dish detergent and a sponge and wash stones individually. Use a toothbrush with cleanser if it seems like there is any stickiness to the stone or any of the other hot stone materials.
Leave stone warmer unplugged between sessions. Keep all hot stone materials together always, so that you do not forget something important such as a thermometer or slotted spoon during your massage session.
Recharging Your Stones
Sometimes stones will might feel a little “sluggish” in energy, especially after extra use and/or cleaning. Some therapists feel the stones absorb client energies. To recharge your stones:
- Lay stones outside during a Full Moon to recharge energetic properties
- Lay stones in the grass or in rain if Full Moon is not available
