River Stone Massage


For this procedure you will need seven or more smooth river stones.

I prefer to heat the rocks with water than to use dry heat.

The stones can be immersed in a large container of not quite boiling water.

Letting the rocks soak for about 20 minutes is sufficient.

Test the heated stone gently on the outside of your hands before applying it to any other area of the body to prevent burning or discomfort.

The stone retains muscle soothing heat as you massage.

The stone can be used to exert mild pressure and with the addition of a few drops of essential oil, it becomes an aromatherapy massage.

Flatter stones can be positioned along the spine and left for short periods of time for specific benefits.
Consult a meridian chart for proper placement.

fasting cleanser (this has been around since the 1960’s I think?)
  • 30 ml (2 tablespoons) fresh lemon juice (leave the pulp in)
  • 15- 30 ml (1 to 2 tablespoons) molasses or maple syrup
  • 250 ml (8 ounces) of warm but not too hot spring water or filtered water (not distilled or gaseous)
Even if you don't do a fast, this cleanser can be used as a tonic. The sour nature of the cleanser is considered beneficial for the liver and gallbladder. You will want to consume six to twelve glasses of the cleanser, along with at least 2 liters of water per day. The easiest fast to undertake is a juice cleanse, in which you combine fresh juices along with the Fasting Cleanser.
