Hot/Cold Stone Therapy
Stones have been used for healing for many thousands of years by cultures including the Romans, Chinese, Egyptians and American Indians. The types of stones used for massage are primarily basalt (of volcanic origin) or a combination of basalt and other minerals. These have good heat retention abilities and are very smooth. The stones become an extension of the therapist’s hands.
A stone massage treatment is an application of geo-thermotherapy using heated stones alternating with chilled stones to bring about a chemical release within the body’s systems. This method of treating the body with warm and cool stones is deeply soothing and very therapeutic, delivering vast healing qualities and enhanced wellbeing.
