Hot Stone Massage is a form of body work therapy that involves the application of heated
stones and oil to the body. Round, smooth stones are heated to luxurious warmth, oiled
and used in the palm of the hands to massage the body.
Heat penetrates deeply, prompting profound relaxation, increased detoxification, and
relief of long-standing muscular tension, stress and fatigue.
The high iron content in basalt helps the stones retain heat during the massage. Hot stone
massages are beneficial on both physical and psychological levels.
Use alone or as an add on to Reiki , Cupping therapy or reflexology
Like most massage techniques, hot stone massage is proven to be safe and effective
in treating a number of conditions, including pain associated with fibromyalgia,
arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome and other chronic musculoskeletal conditions,
pain and tension resulting from strained muscles, muscle spasms and chronic stress,
while increasing joint flexibility.
The hot stones also expand blood vessels, which improves circulation and "energy flow"
throughout the body, aiding in detoxification, stimulating our immune system and
improving digestion, insomnia, anxiety and depression.
