Hot stone massage
Hot Stone Massage is based on the traditions derived from the ancient American natives in Arizona who used hot stone massages as a source of healing. The stones have been around since the beginning of time and hold a powerful mother Earth energy in them to bring healing to the mind, body, and spirit. In Stone Massage, black volcanic basalt stones are used, together with warm essential oils. The treatment consists of applying the heated stones to various areas of the body, combined with a relaxing massage. The stones retain the heat due to their high mineral content and release heat very slowly to the soft tissue of the body, which, combined with a massage, brings considerable benefits to the body: increased blood circulation, alleviation of any muscular pains and relaxation both physically and mentally. Another obvious benefit is tissue regeneration, eliminating toxins and leaving the skin toned and smoothed.
