Hot Stone Therapy is the skilful art of bodywork utilizing various size, form and weights of warmed, smooth, flattish stones. You are massaged from head to toe with hot stones! As well, the pre-warmed stones are placed on key points of the body to stimulate the circulatory system. The stones are also used to warm, soften and relax tight, aching muscles; while promoting an extraordinary feeling of relaxation and contentment. Often, rocks made of smooth volcanic Basalt are used because of their high iron content and ability to retain heat.
While the hot stones soften the body muscles and help to release toxins, your trained therapist will usually apply Swedish Style relaxation massage to other areas of your body. Select warmed, smooth stones are often used with essential oils as a massage tool by your therapist as well.
Your therapist will choose the number, size, weight and quantity of warmed stones that will be used in your treatment. Sometimes the healing property of heat is also utilized with small heated stones between your toes or other areas of your body that can benefit. In certain cases, your therapist may alternately use cold stones with the hot ones, to help in healing muscular injury and inflammation.
A number of specific therapeutic benefits are attributed to the skillful application and usage of hot stones. Health conditions such as deep muscular aches and pains, stress, circulatory problems, arthritis, fibromylagia, sleep problems and others, can benefit wondrously from skilfully applied Hot Stone Therapy.
