Hot Stone Massage may have originated as far back as 5,000 years ago in India and the ancient healing tradition of Ayurveda, which balances wind, spirit and air. It is thought that smooth stones were taken from river beds and then warmed to use in healing and massage. A Hot Stone Massage combines the time proven healing therapy of heat and therapeutic massage. Used for relaxation as well as for chronic tension and pain, a Hot Stone Massage is a nurturing experience beyond compare.
How It Is Done?
In this comforting and healing massage, stones of varying sizes and weights are placed comfortably into the contours of the body on areas that tend to hold tension, like the back muscles, abdomen, and face. Oiled stones are then used in flowing strokes to relax the whole body. A Hot Stone Session usually lasts 1 1/2 hours.
