Plan a “Fall Fun Run” to Southeast MN and Lanesboro MN

With summer going by quickly and fall fast approaching, now is the time to plan a “fall fun run” to Lanesboro to rest, rejuvenate, and explore.  At Stone Mill Hotel & Suites, you can check off all of the above-mentioned items. Imagine, you could be sitting and enjoying morning coffee or a glass of wine on the deck. (You could be you in one of those chairs!)

Your exploration can start with the on-premise Art & Craft Gallery.  If exploration of the area is for you, why not take an Amish tour with Bluffscape Amish Tours.  If you want to take a self-guided tour of the Amish community, you can rent an Amish Backroads Tour CD.  Either of these tours will provide a fun and educational way to learn more about our neighbors.

After a day of fun, you can rest and relax in any of the rooms or suites.  For a step above in relaxation, choose a suite with a double jacuzzi. Soak the stresses of the day away.  You can rejuvenate at the on-site Day Spa with a variety of massages and services.  Let your muscles be soothed with a circulatory or deep tissue massage.  Give your body the comfort it deserves.

Beyond the doors of the Feed Mill, you will find many activities in Lanesboro such as canoeing, tubing, theater, shopping, and golfing.

If your exploration takes you beyond the limits of Lanesboro, Niagara Cave near Harmony, The Spam Museum in Austin, and Four Daughters Winery near Spring Valley are popular destinations in Southeastern Minnesota.

Until next time . . . .

Lanesboro Massage | Lanesboro Day Spa

May 06, 2013:  We loved everything about our stay in Lanesboro. Started off with a massage at the Lanesboro Day Spa! Angie was fantastic! We stayed in the Garden Suite and loved the room! We had a king sized bed in a loft and the bed was soooo comfortable. The people at the hotel treated us like family! You could explore the hotel and every room was unique. It is a beautiful place. We enjoyed exploring the lovely town and eating at Pedal Pushers. The Bluffscape Amish Tour with Joan was great! She had a lot of info and took us to interesting farms! We will definitely return and highly recommend Stone Mill Hotel and Suites! Barb and Chuck from Mahtomedi, MN

Stone Mill Celebrates the Holidays
{Holiday Getaways in Southern MN}

As the sun sets on another season, we begin to realize the holidays are fast approaching.  In the next two months we will not only usher in a new season but also celebrate the holidays in style.  Halloween is fun for the little ones that are looking to scare a neighbor or two with the hopes of being rewarded with some sweet treats.  Some of us older kids also like to celebrate the holiday in a more adult way.

As we move through November, we celebrate Thanksgiving.  We, at Stone Mill Hotel & Suites, are very thankful for all of our blessings.  As we take time to reflect on this year, we want to say “thank you” to all of our wonderful guests.  If you have visited us this year, you have witnessed our “in process” project.  We continue to take steps to make Stone Mill a premier place to stay.

With the Lanesboro Christmas Inn Tour just weeks away, we are busy organizing the decorations.  We have a Stone Mill “Sweets” day planned for baking treats for the day.

This time of year is perfect for a relaxing getaway.  You can unwind in one of the jacuzzi or fireplace suites at Stone Mill.  Maybe you need a little pampering or a massage at the Lanesboro Day Spa.  Maybe you just need some quiet time alone or with that special someone.  Whatever the reason, give us a call at 507.467.8663 and let the relaxation begin.

Whatever the season, celebrate it with Stone Mill style.

Energy Therapies at Prana Healing Massage

Here at Lanesboro Day Spa and Prana Healing Massage Center we are very grateful to our clients.  I would like to share a comment that we had received:

 

Prana Healing Massage | Energy Therapies | Lanesboro MNI received a Energy Therapies / Body Massage from Sue Betts, PHA-LMT at Prana Healing Massage Center in the Lanesboro Day Spa and would like to share that she is very thorough with the massage and was able to find the areas that I personally was unaware of until Sue started moving and opening up the  “stuck energies”.  I appreciate her approach and concern for the whole well-being of the body, emotion, and spirit, and how they all play together for a healthier body and mind. I love the felling of the opening, lightness in my body as the massage progresses. I received excellent resources for questions about my muscles, body and daily care for the whole body.  This is one of my favorite massages !!!!!!   — 7/11/2012 Shanna W.

Unlock the Benefits of Bodywork

Sue Betts Prana Healing MassageAt Prana Healing Massage Center www.massageprana.com we are committed to your health and well-being. Today we are going to be talking about unlocking the benefits of Massage:

We know we are what we eat, but have you considered you are also what you think? Most people go to a massage therapist for stress reduction and relaxation. You want your pain to decrease, your tension to melt away, and your body to relax. But what if you can help the process along simply by changing your words and thoughts?

Studies have shown that stress slows wound healing, increases heart rate and blood pressure and even seems to speed aging. We all have been affected by stress and try to find different ways to relieve the tensions. Massage addresses so much of our physical bodies, but what will change your thoughts. Here are a few suggestions that you can bring to your mind during you next massage to enhance lasting effects, decrease stress, and benefit your emotional body, too.

Getting a massage, breath work, qigong, meditation, tai chi, yoga and visualization are some of the things we can do for ourselves. You can incorporate some of these techniques into your massage, starting with meditation. There have been several times that I have taken a minute or two before a bodywork session to do a minin with the clients and help them relax. I asked what the intention is for their sessions today. What would the client like to focus the healing on today. Then we discuss the following techniques that are helpful to clear the mind:

Countdown- count very slowly to yourself from 10 down to zero, one number on each out breath. Breathe in deeply and on your first out breath say “10″ to your self. Repeat and with the next out breath , say “9″ working your way down to zero. When you get to zero, notice how you feel.

Visualize relaxation is another way that can help you relax during your massage. Picture the muscle the therapist is working on and imagine it melting or softening, it can help with the treatment. If you are having a relaxing massage, picture you body melting into the table or turning to jelly.

These techniques can release endorphins throughout the body to relax. Incorporating your mind during bodywork can create an even more enjoyable and relaxing experience.
