Hot Stone Therapy is an ancient healing art which has been used in many different cultures for many years. Healers used rocks from river beds and warmed them in coals or water. The heat from the stones penetrates into the muscles, relaxing the body to a deeper level. As well as physiological changes this treatment influences the body’s internal flow (chi) creating harmony and balance to both body and mind.
The basalt stones used are a form of black volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat well, which enables a deeply soothing relaxing form of massage.
