Hot stone massage involves the application of water-heated basalt stones of varying sizes to key points on the body, giving a deep massage and creating sensations of comfort and warmth. The direct heat relaxes muscles, allowing manipulation of a greater intensity than with regular massage.
Hot stone massage is deeply relaxing, allowing you to let go of all the stress than is held within your body. It goes beyond the physical experience of typical massage and enters deeper dimensions of relaxation, health and well-being. Hot Stone Massage is the therapy for today's over-accelerated rhythm of life and subsequent amount of stress that people carry on their shoulders and within themselves.
The direct heat from the basalt stones relaxes muscles, allowing manipulation of a great intensity than with regular massage. Hot stones expand blood vessels, which push blood and waste through the nervous system, thus inducing a sedative effect.
