About Therapeutic Hot Stone
 
Stone Massage while using Swedish Technique provides a rejuvenating experience to the body, mind & soul. Stone Massage, a type of Stone Therapy, follows the same principles as Reflexology, balancing the energies, and allowing more energy flow to blocked areas of the body. When using the energies from warm, specialty stones, the flow of energy is transferred into the body and increased within.

    Since ancient times, the people of Hawaii have used hot stones for both physical and spiritual healing. Using basalt stones--fine-grained, high-density volcanic rocks with an exceptional ability to store heat--hot stone massage not only dispels tensions and soothes the soul but also enhances lymph flow, removes toxins, and fortifies the immune system. The treatment causes blood vessels to dilate, leading to improved circulation and consequently improved oxygen, nutrient, antibody, and protective cell supply to the area of the body under the stones and is extremely effective for joint problems, back pain, and sore muscles. Beyond the strictly physical benefits, the massage also stimulates the meridians and chakras, gently dissipating energetic blockages.
