Hot stone Massage has been practised for many years and by many cultures, including Native Americans, Mayan and Hawaiians. These people developed a very effective massage using smooth volcanic rocks as tools. Massage with the combination of the deep power of the stones, releasing all minerals and warmth during treatment, releases tension from the body, calming the nervous system.
The Basalt Stones are heated in a water reservoir with a pre-determined temperature. Once dried off they are placed on specific parts of the body (usually energy points), when that area is warm the stone is used to massage the area, giving a great sense of warmth and relaxation. As the stones cool they will be replaced with more warm stones.
Hot Stone Massage can be a full body massage or used on specific parts of the body. This can be adapted to suit the individual's needs.
