Hot Stone Massage
Hot stones have been used as a therapeutic tool for massage for centuries with evidence dating back to ancient
Egypt, China, Japan, South America and Australia. Ancient civilizations believed that hot stones cleansed the
body and relaxed the heart, grounding the soul and soothing the mind.
This long, luxurious treatment uses massage and natural deep heat in the form of heated basalt stones to relieve muscle tension and stimulate the body’s own detoxification processes.
Hot Stone Massage begins with placing warm, oiled stones on multiple acupressure points around your body, perhaps even tiny ones between your toes. You may drift off into a dreamy state and lose track of where the hot stones are arranged.
Hot stone massage employs a variety of strokes and techniques using the stones and hands, working over kinks in your muscles. You are unlikely to feel the intensity, since your muscles will be relaxed by the heat of the stones.
Hot stone massage should trigger a deeply relaxed, blissed-out and meditative state. Some people have reported closing their eyes and seeing bright colours. Enjoy the afterglow - float slowly back to the real world and re-hydrate your body by sipping plenty of water.
