The use of heated basalt stones for massage dates back to ancient times and in recent years has become a very popular healing therapy. The heat of the stones helps you to de-stress, detoxify and become deeply relaxed in super quick time.
Fatigued, tired muscles are loosened up very quickly allowing for a much deeper tissue massage, if required, helping to calm the nervous system, reducing stress, boosting immunity and improving blood circulation and promoting feelings of wellbeing.
Heat works to penetrate deep into the muscle tissue with one stroke of a stone being equivalent to 4/5 strokes by hand.
Benefits of Hot Stone massage can include:
- Eases arthritic pain and discomfort
- Helps to reduce stress, tension, anxiety and depression.
- Improved sleep
- Increased lymphatic drainage – removal of toxins in the body
- Improves blood circulation
- Induces a deep state of meditative relaxation
