Pat Ward replied to Paula Hulen, CMT's discussion Stones that Smell in the group Stone Therapy
"I would try white vinegar, soak them for a while in the vinegar and then rinse thoroughly in hot water and then scrub them again with a soapy solution. It is a good idea to put the stones outside in the sun occasionally to recharge them."

Stones that Smell

I recently inherited some stones and they still have an odor after I have cleaned them thoroughly, individually, in hot soapy water. Any suggestions on how to get rid of the smell? I have a feeling that they were not cleaned after each use and have absorbed internally this odor...Thank you in advance for any helpful suggestions.

Paula Hulen, CMT replied to Donna C. Agrinsonis, LMT's discussion A funny question for you all.... in the group Natural oils, lotions and lotion making
"Donna, Thanks for the questions! I would use some of the virgin coconut oil I just got for an at-home massage, and on an island, hopefully there would be some avocado trees, would blend it with some coconut water, that would be an interesting mix!"

Yes i do practice in Yuba City. But I'll be moving to Folsom at the end of the month! Hope business will do well there!

medical massage is outcome based - intent is to remedy shortened, fibrosed or adhesed tissues and relieve nerve entrapment. It is therapy rather than just relaxation.

While massage is well in Mobile Alabama, I would much rather move my practise to an area overflowing with open minds. :}

Hi Paula & Aloha!

I teach lomi lomi , have you studied it yet? Love it!

Hey, would you please participate in a massage survey? Thanks!
http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=OhBtGlEETUWwi9h5olkCGQ_3d_3d

Please help me compile this information. I'd like more than a 1,000 if possible. Sure it is!
Your participation is MOST appreciated.
Remember you do not have to answer all the questions and Page 2 is "optional". Page two is for those employed only, NOT Self Employed!The survey company automatically includes Page 2 and I was unable to edit or delete. SO it IS OPTIONAL!
Pass it on to your colleagues too.

The intention is to publish this research to assist
Future LMT's, educators, employers and anyone else interested in the statistics of the massage industry!
I want to give you a voice to share your thoughts and experiences.

The Survey will end November 29, 2009
