Hot Stone Massage
Hot Stone Massage is a body massage carried out by using pre-heated riverbed-washed basalt stones, combined with the placement of warm stones to the body.
The stones used are basalt. They are riverbed-washed, thereby ensuring that they are smooth with no unpleasant sharp or jagged edges. Basalt is volcanic and iron-rich. It absorbs heat easily and upon use in the massage the heat is released into the skin and muscles in a controlled, even manner. Natural basalt varies in colour from grey to charcoal to greyish-green.
Heat from the stones penetrates deeply into muscle tissue and allows the muscles to relax 4-5 times more quickly than can be achieved by a standard body massage alone. Increased blood flow eases muscular tension and revitalises muscle tissue. Oxygen levels in the area are raised and cell metabolism is improved by 10-15%.
Benefits of Hot Stone Massage
- Muscular aches and pains from tired, overworked muscles and/or posture-related problems are eased and soothed because the heat enables both superficial and deep muscle tissue to be worked on without any discomfort.
- Body systems work together more effectively because the heat in conjunction with massage provides enhanced physiological benefits such as increased circulation, cell metabolism and stimulation of the lymphatic system.
- The heat provides a meditative and calm state and deep relaxation wherein stress and stress related problems may be eased and dealt with more effectively.
