Wonderful addition to my stones. These are absolutely perfect to use in my practice, and perfect sizes. I already have a few of the much larger sacral/abdomen stones in my current set, so all two large stones in this set are going to be great for massaging quads, glutes, and other larger areas. The toe stones will be great for toes and for facial stones as well. Nice quality, nice variety, really pleased. Reading these comments, I am seeing a lot of people who are not professionals using some potentially dangerous heating methods. Even as a LMT, you are required to go through extra training and certification to be covered by liability insurance. You NEVER want to use stones hotter than 145 degrees F. 125-135F is going to be a good range to work with. The qualities of basalt make it VERY VERY easy to cause SERIOUS burns if you don't know what you are working with. Leave it to the professionals, or at the very least watch a bunch of videos on techniques and safety.
An effective maintenance program is based on the massage therapist's understanding of anatomy and kinesiology, combined with an expert knowledge of which muscles are used in a given sport and which are likely candidates for trouble. By zeroing in on particular muscle groups and working specific tissues, the sports massage therapist can help the athlete maintain or improve range of motion and muscle flexibility. The overall objective of a maintenance program is to help the athlete reach optimal performance through injury-free training.
