HEATING

Synergy Stones can be heated in multiple ways. In a Microwave oven, with our Water-Free System, in a Towel Cabby or with hot water are the most common. The quickest way is to microwave them for 1-2 minutes for single or pairs or up to 5 Stones at a time to Preheat before keeping them hot during your massage with a Water-Free System or hot water. 


Microwave Oven Heating

Synergy Stones are made of solid Stoneware so they are able to be quickly heated in a microwave oven. For heating at home or preheating at a studio or Spa, microwaving couldn't get any easier. Heat stones in as little as 1 minute and reheat in as little as 30 seconds! Depending on your microwave you can even heat an entire CORE Set of 10 Synergy Stones in as little as 4 minutes. This method of preheating a Set of stones is convenient and makes massaging that much more fun.  Any SYNERGY STONE can be heated in a microwave oven.


Water-Free Heating Pad Systems

This Water-Free heating method simplifies heating your Synergy Stones and makes it possible when water isn't available. The Heating pad method also saves valuable time during setup and between massages. One of the most important benefits is that it makes exchanging stones easier with no water to dry off and not having to dip hands in hot water repeatedly. This video highlights the CORE Set of SYNERGY STONE HEAT~WAVE Massage Tools being heated in the Water Free system.

Using only 1 heating Pad, an Oil-Proof case for the pad and a small tray to hold the pad and stones you can enhance many different styles of massage as well as offer the HEAT~WAVE Synergy Stone Massage.

You'll need: A CORE Set of 5 Synergy Stones(or your own combination), a 14x27" BodyMed heating pad, an Oil-Proof case for the heating pad and a small Maple Wood tray.


Towel Cabinet Method

The Towel Cabinet heating method is very simple but does not give as much temperature control as the other options.  You can preheat your Synergy Stones in a Microwave oven for 1-2 minutes to get started.  If not in a hurry, simply place your Synergy Stones on a folded washcloth that can be replaced after each client.  During use be sure to check the temperature.  If too hot let air cool until comfortable to hold.


Hot Water Basin Method

Hot water is a traditional method of heating Stones. Heat is generated from electrical elements in the walls of the heater and transfers to the water and into the stones. Hot water has been the most common way to heat stones around the world. Water is a good medium to transfer heat energy into the stones.

Drawbacks of using hot water are that it takes extra time to set up and clean between massages. Also, dipping hands into hot water can be uncomfortable. In addition, drying the stones off each time you exchange cool stones for hot stones causes more time to be spent away from the massage.

Any of the three Synergy Stone Sets can be heated within an 18qt. water filled Stone heater.
