How to Place Stones for Lower Back Massage

Learn where and how to place the stones for a lower back massage from celebrity massage therapist Meagan Holub in this Howcast massage video.


So when working on the lower back, you can actually place more pressure into that sacral area with the stones. I'm gonna show you how to do that and then we're gonna show you where to set the sacral stone. So first I'm gonna use my palm size stones. Start up here in the front and we're gonna do a nice circular motion right there around the sacrum. Sort of around the two areas where you would imagine dimples to be. You'll notice I'm using the edge of them. These stones are nice and round so that edge is smooth. You can get in there nice and deeply. Or you can use them flat for a little less pressure, depending on what your client prefers. Then you're gonna take your large stone, some nice warm temperature, and go ahead and place that right on your client's sacrum. That can stay there releasing heat in that area and keeping her relaxed while I work on other areas. And that's how you work on the low back with hot stones.
