Abingdon, Virginia — New Sassi Stones self-heating massage stones will change your massage therapy, and they’re now available to spas exclusively from Universal


Made from crushed stone and clay, Sassi Stones are each powered by a rechargeable battery that powers a heater, which heats the bottom of the stone. They warm up on one side in just one minute and stay hot 60-90 minutes. Sassi Stones are rechargeable through a convenient port on the top back of the stones, and they turn on automatically when they are unplugged.

These easy-to-use, innovative stones are designed to provide deep heat to muscles so the therapist can further manipulate the muscles for therapeutic results. They can be used over clothing or on the skin with a massage medium. However, they are meant to always be in motion and should never be used as placement stones.

Sassi Stones are:

  • Made from crushed stone and clay
  • Self-heating on one side
  • Ready in one minute
  • Warm at least one hour
  • Portable
  • Easy to clean
  • Best to use with massage cream
  • 2.5″ x 3.5″ – the perfect size

Therapists can use Sassi Stones for full-stone massage or as an easy add-on to any massage. For instance, offer a “Warm Stone Infusion” and include your client’s favorite essential oil or blend to customize his or her treatment experience. Estheticians can also offer shoulder and arm massage, nail technicians can use them for calf massage, and hair stylists can provide shoulder massage during color treatment.

The inventor and creator of Sassi Stones, Dominic Orlando, began his career as a massage therapist in 2002.

“I was working in a large resort spa and didn’t like the hassles of stone massages,” he said. “That’s when I decided there had to be a better way to do it.”
