Requirements for practicing a career in acupuncture vary from state to state, but are among the most stringent of the alternative medicine disciplines. In some states earning an undergraduate degree is mandatory before you can take the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) examination. Most acupuncture training degrees are offered as three-year master’s programs. You should check the state requirements before choosing your acupuncture school.

“Runners put so much effort into training, but very few athletes put effort into taking good care of body that helps them perform,” says Gammal, who recommends incorporating regular massage—even if it’s just a 30-minute session once a month—so as to prevent injuries and the overtraining of muscles. Scheduling mid-training appointments can also reveal places that are tight and places that should be addressed in post-workout stretching. “Massage isn’t a luxury, Gammal says. “It’s an investment.”

Not all massage stones are equal! Basalt is the preferred stone for hot stone massage because of it's unique ability to retain heat for longer periods of time than any other type of stone. This is because natural basalt has a very high iron and magnesium content. Let's imagine a piece of steel that has been exposed to the natural elements for any length of time. The elements combine to create what we know as rust. When the rust is removed by scraping, grinding, or sanding, the surface of the exposed steel changes in color, texture, and the overall appearance. Because of the high iron content of natural basalt, rusted steel is much like the surface of natural basalt stones that have been exposed to the elements for 100's and 1000's of years. An oxidized crust can form on the natural basalt. This crust changes the color, texture and overall appearance of the stone Our stones are very unique in that we have developed a proprietary abrasive wash process that gently scrubs away the surface of the stone to remove the outer crust. This means the stones you receive have been through our specially developed, multi-step process, to remove this outer crust leaving the surface more consistent in texture and smoother to the touch, but NOT polished like tumbling will do. Polished stones should NEVER be used for hot stone massage because when combined with oil, they can be VERY slippery and dangerous. With over 25 years in the natural stone industry, we have extensive knowledge of natural basalt stones. There are several massage therapists that sell stones part time, massage supply dealers that do drop shipping, and various others selling stones said to be for hot stone massage, but at RubRocks, massage stones are ALL we do.
Reflexology, also known as zone therapy, is an alternative medicine involving application of pressure to the feet and hands with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion. It is based on a pseudoscientific system of zones and reflex areas that purportedly reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands, with the premise that such work effects a physical change to the body.
