Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage combines the benefits of Hydrotherapy and 'Thermalism' or 'Thermotherapy' (the use of heat applications) with massage strokes, using stones to create a deep, relaxing and healing treatment.  
Using the heat of the stones to warm the skin allows the skin to absorb moisturizing and therapeutic oils, while at the same time preparing the musculature of the body so the therapist can work into the deeper muscle layers.
It is generally accepted that one stroke of a heated basalt stone is equivalent to 5 strokes of the therapists hand.
Evidence of stone massage dates back to over 3000 years. Ancient civilizations believed that hot stones were beneficial for cleansing the body, relaxing the heart, grounding the soul and soothing the mind. Some native healers used heated stones to ease the discomforts experienced during menstruation, or applied cold stones to impede blood flow after giving birth.
