Hot Stone therapy is a totally harmonising, restoring and rejuvenating treatment for the body where Basalt stones are heated and applied to the body in a super relaxing way.
Hot stone therapy goes beyond the physical experience of a typical massage and enters deeper dimensions of relaxation, health and well-being. Physically the circulation and metabolism are stimulated – mentally and spiritually you can reach a state of ‘deep relaxation’.
Hot stone therapy combines traditional massage with the use of smooth, heated basalt stones, which are applied to the body as an extension of the therapist’s hands. The warmth of these heated stones penetrates muscles and balances the nervous system like no other treatment. Basalt Stones are black volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat well and has been smoothed by natural forces in the river or sea.
The premise behind hot stone massage therapy is that the direct heat of the stones relaxes muscles, allowing access to the deeper muscle layers.. The hot stones also expand blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body. The hot stones have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation
