is Hot Sone Masage?
Hot Stone Massage incorporates the use of hot, oiled, basalt stones
(volcanic stones), in a full relaxation body massage. The volcanic
stones are first heated in a pot of hot water and then coated
with aromatherapy massage oils. The hot stones are placed on the
hands, arms, shoulders, back, legs, feet, neck and face to warm
the body, allowing you to feel deeply relaxed . Experience the
smooth texture of oiled stones, as the soothing heat penetrates
deeply into the muscles to relieve all tensions. Hot Stone Massage
stimulates the circulatory system, relaxes muscles, helps release
toxins, induces deep relaxation, relieves pain and muscle spasms,
and creates a feeling of peacefulness.
The use of basalt stones (volcanic stones) is old and has been
passed on through the ages to many generations. This ancient therapy
was used by Native Americans for their spiritual and physical
recharging of energies. They also used the stones in their sweat
lodges. Many different nationalities, for eg. the Russians, have
used these stones in their baths. The Hawaiians used the volcanic
stones for healing and burial ceremonies and the list goes on.

blood pressure, hernias, varicose veins, skin conditions (wounds,
