Hot stone massage is a variation on classic massage therapy. Heated, smooth stones are placed on key points on the body. The volcanic rocks are heated to a certain temperature that will be placed at specific points on the back, in the palms of the hands and feet. The heat relaxes the muscles, improves circulation and calms the nervous system. The stones can also be placed at points that are considered as energy centers of the body to rebalance the body and the mind.
Hot stone massage is suited to people who tend to feel chilly or who have cold feet. It is also ideal for people who have muscle tension but prefer a lighter massage. The heat relaxes muscles, allowing muscles to work (4 cm) without using much pressure.
It also stimulates weight loss, improved organ function, recovers and harmonizes the energies of body, mind and spirit.
