What is Hot Stone Massage?
Hot Stone Massage uses smooth basalt stones which are warmed up in water and are used during massage.
The soothing heat from the stones warms up the skin and penetrates deep in the muscles, joints, tissues to provide pain relief, stress relief, improved circulation, healing and relaxation.
Japanese Hot Stone Massage uses the theory of Chinese Medicine, meridians, acupoints, Zang/Fu and 'Five Element Theory' to re balance deficiency and excess, expel cold, remove blockages and promote blood and Qi circulation.
Hot Stone Therapy is focused on specific problems, be it local or not. It can be used on its own, as an alternative of acupuncture (needling) or complementary to acupuncture as it will contribute to the healing and relaxation.
A relaxing hot stone massage not only treats stress, fatigue and pain, it also resets the nervous system and boosts immunity, it is also preventive.
