What is Hot Stone Massage?
Hot stone massage is a complementary therapy that is deeply relaxing and very therapeutic as it helps to achieve both physical and spiritual balance. Although it is a modern form of massage it taps into the ancient Native American traditions of using hot and cold stones on the body.
The stones used are naturally shaped basalt stones. As the stones are volcanic they conduct heat incredibly well therefore staying warm for a long time. The stones vary in size and come in large, medium, small and toe stones. Their suitability depends on the area of the body being treated and the size of the therapist’s hands. The stones are heated to provide a much deeper and more effective massage.
It is said that a single stroke from a stone is the equivalent to 10 of the hand.
