What is Hot Stone Massage Therapy?
Hot stone massage therapy involves the usage of basalt stones which are stones that are formed by the cooling lava following a volcanic erruption. It is the constant flow of water over the stones that results in their naturally smooth texture and unique shape. Most are found to be a blackish colour. This form of massage is considered to be a geo-thermo-hydro therapy, which involves the therapeutic use of stones that are heated in water. This therapy is known for it’s ability to heal the body by opening up the blood vessels and allowing new nutrients to flow and restore balance in the body.
What to Expect from a Hot Stone Therapy Treatment
Once your therapist has had a chance to go over your health history and any concerns have been adressed you are ready for your hot stone massage! Your therapist will begin with therapeutic massage and alternate with the hot stones. During your massage it is very important that you comminicate with your therapist to let them know that you are comfortable with the temperature of the stones and the pressure. There are various sizes of stones which will be placed stratigically over the body for a more effective treatment. Once your treatment has been completed you will feel relaxed, rejuvenated and refreshed!
