As part of your normal massage treatment heated stones are incorporated to provide a deeper, more intense therapy. Slow, gentle movements allows the heat from these stones to penetrate deeper into the muscles and soft tissue to further enhance the healing benefits of massage. This also promotes deeper relaxation as well as getting rid of negative energy, albeit of mind, body, or spirit.
The stones used are volcanic rocks such as basalt and basinite which have been worn smooth over thousands of years. Once heated the therapist will oil the stones and roll them in her hands to ensure they are the right temperature before applying to the skin. The stones come in various shapes and sizes and are graded according to the area being treated.
