Zenstone is fast and convenient because there is absolutely no water required. Traditional hot stone therapy systems require gallons of water to be boiled in a large kettle-like appliance. Because the Zenstone system is waterless, it is much easier to use, faster, cleaner and entirely portable.
Our proprietary rapid waterless heating system drastically reduces heating time because there is no water to boil, heating stones in as little as 10 minutes. Other water-bath stone heaters can take up to 25 minutes or longer with set up and clean up time.
Stones heat to 130 F, the optimal temperature for hot stone massage based on expert research.
Twelve special precision-cut professional-grade stones are included, developed using material science to heat up quicker and hold heat longer than traditional basalt stones. Made from a variant of limestone which contains naturally-occurring calcium carbonate, these stones also have a beautiful natural grain, and are fully compatible with massage oil.
Once heated, stones stay hot for 10 - 15 min, depending on stone size and ambient temperature.
A starter treatment guide is included to so you can get started with hot stone therapy quickly. This guide helps acquaint new comers, less-experienced therapists and home users with the basics of hot stone therapy. While professionals have their own preferred methods, they may find this reminder of the fundamentals to be useful.
A stylish, cool-to-the-touch exterior outer casing helps protect you from the high heat generated by the system during the warming process.
Absolutely, a push-button release on the front locks the unit so stones to be stored inside for easy transport and maximum portability.
Use of certain oils on the stones in combination with essential oils is an important aspect of hot stone therapy. Oil not only insulates the stones and allows them to glide easily over the body - it also nourishes the skin while the aroma of essential oils enhance the relaxing and calming effects of the experience. Base oils for hot stone massages can be almond, jojoba or macadamia nut oil. Depending on the aroma that accords with the senses of the recipient of the therapy, add a few drops of essential oil. We recommend adding either peppermint, eucalyptus, lavender or bergamot orange essential oils to your base oil.
For optimal experience, make sure to leave stones inside of the Zenstone unit for at least 10 minutes. Try leaving them slightly longer for hotter stones, depending on your preference. Our sweet-spot is 12 minutes. After turning the Zenstone unit off, remove the stones and coat them evenly with oil and wrap them loosely in a dry towel to preserve their heat. Stones should keep their heat for 10 - 15 minutes, depending on how they are used.
The ancients believed that the stones used during a treatment absorb the tension and energy of the body. Whether you believe as they do or not, the care instructions are the same. Clean the stones by rinsing them under cold running water. Always wait for stones to cool completely before washing them. A plant-based soap can be used to disinfect, if required.

This warmer is designed to provide a comfortable long exposure to skin. This is why heat is often not present to your touch. To test if your warmer is working perform the following steps: (1) roll the warmer up and turn it on to the highest heat setting. (2) after no more than 5 minutes, put your hand into the middle of the warmer and leave it there for a minute to feel if there is heat. A faint amount of heat should be present, which means your warmer is working as it should.
First, check that the power outlet that your warmer is plugged into is working. If the outlet is working and your warmer still has no power, it is possible that the warmer’s safety circuit was triggered after the last use of the warmer, or a wire was stretched. Please contact us with a replacement request and we will assess your case quickly to get you a new warmer within days.
This warmer is designed to provide warmth for a comfortable long exposure to skin. Our research shows that clients feel optimally comfortable when the temperature does not heat past 90º F. It is not meant to be used as a heating blanket, which goes much higher in temperature, and covers the user instead of radiating heat from below.
