Hot Stone Treatment

Hot Stone Therapy is the skilful art of bodywork utilizing various size, form and weights of warmed, smooth, flattish stones. The pre-warmed stones are placed on key points of the body to stimulate the circulatory system, and encourage the even flow of chi. The stones are also used to warm, soften and relax tight, aching muscles; while promoting an extraordinary feeling of relaxation and contentment. Often, rocks made of smooth volcanic Basalt are used because of their high iron content and ability to retain heat.

While the hot stones soften the body muscles and help to release toxins, the therapist will usually apply Swedish Style relaxation massage to other areas of your body. Select warmed, smooth stones are often used with essential oils as a massage tool by your therapist as well.

The therapist will choose the size, weight and quantity of warmed stones that will be used in your treatment. Sometimes the healing property of heat is also utilized with small heated stones between your toes other areas of your body that can benefit. In certain cases, cold stones may alternately be used with the hot ones, to help in healing muscular injury and inflammation.

Health conditions such as deep muscular aches and pains, stress, circulatory problems, arthritis, fibromylagia, sleep problems and others, can benefit greatly from the skilled application of Hot Stone Therapy. The combination of Relaxation Massage and Hot Stone Therapy is definitely an experience that clients come back for time and again. If you have never experienced this unique technique, treat yourself, and visit my "appointment book" to schedule a session.
