What Is hot stone massage?
Hot Stone Massage, also called geothermal therapy, is an ancient massage technique that has become popular in spas and manual therapies for health care and beauty. This practice involves palcing stones on different parts of the body that are considered energy points: spinal column, forehead, abdo-men, hands and toes.
Normally, basalt rocks (i.e., volcanic) are used for hot stone massage. These rocks have to be smooth and soft and thick and as dark as possi-ble because then contain more iron and retain heat longer. The temperature of the rocks should not exceed 50 degrees.
How do they work?
The volcanic stone massage works by dilating the blood and Lymphatic vessels, which stimulates blood circulation and helps eliminate toxins. It also relaxes the muscles, relieving tension, relaxes the body and improves the condition of the skin. Finally, this treatment concludes with a relaxing massage using conventional oils as an added benefit of the hot stone massage.
