Hot stone therapy is a specialist massage that uses smooth, flat, heated basalt stones that are positioned along your spine, in the palms of your hands, along your legs and between the toes. Typically from river beds, basalt stones are used for massage as they have a rich iron content that retains heat. Cold marble stones are often used in the treatment to help aid with detoxing and healing the body and can feel rejuvenating.
Stones are warmed until they are within the precise temperature range of between 50 and 55 degrees centigrade. A hot stone massage may begin with a traditional Swedish massage technique to prepare your muscles. The warm stones are placed on key acupressure points on your body. The stones warm and relax your muscles, allowing deeper pressure to be applied during your massage.
The origins of hot stone therapy can be traced back to over 2,000 years ago, when the Chinese used heated stones more than 2,000 years ago as a means of improving the function of internal organs. The combination of hot and cold stones encourages your body to detox and heal through increasing your lymphatic flow and encouraging your body to remove waste products.
