The ancient healing of the hot stone massage has been used for thousands of years worldwide by healers, the Tibetan monks and the American Indians to name a few.It involves the application of water heated warm basalt stones of varying sizes to key points on the body, giving a deep massage and creating sensations of comfort and warm. The direct heat relaxes the muscles, allowing manipulation of a greater intensity than regular massage. They say one stroke of a stone is equivalent to ten of the hand and many clients that try it never go back to traditional massage.
