Hot Stone Massage
Stones, heated in clean sanitized water, are used to impart heat to the body, typically being laid on top of a cloth along both sides of the spine or other energy centres of the body. At the same time, the therapist massages the client with oiled, heated stones held in the palm of the hand along the muscles of the legs, arms and torso. The heat helps to relax muscles and increases the blood flow to the area being worked on, also aiding mental relaxation. Excellent for treatment of back pain, rheumatic and arthritic conditions, and also insomnia.
