Hot Stone Massage
Hot Stone Massage was used by the Native Americans to treat aching muscles. In today’s society Hot Stone Massage has become a specialised treatment where the therapist uses heated smooth stones as an extension of their hands. They also place stones on the body’s chakra points.
Although the heat can be used as a form of relaxation, it also warms the muscles allowing the therapist to work deeper more quickly.
