Healing Stones Massage

A style of massage in which water-heated basalt stones are placed at specific points on the client's body to promote relaxation and to help open up the merdians (energy pathways) in the body. Muscles are pretreated with the heated stones to allow the therapist to more easily perform deep tissue massage, while creating a profound and sacred experience of calm, comfort, warmth, and inner peace. Cool stones are sometimes used alternately with hot stones. Specifically, frozen cooling marble stones are used for muscular injury and inflammation. Massage oils are usually incorporated into the massage treatment.It is quite an experience to feel the deeply relaxing, penetrating heat from the basalt stones alternating with the toning and refreshing coolness of the marble stones. The use of extremes of temperature has long been scientifically and medically proven to be of benefit to the body. Those who wish to relax and tone their muscles with a minimum of effort see this in the use of ice packs for muscle trauma and the use of saunas. Stone massage makes you feel deeply relaxed, allowing you to let go of all the stress that is held within your body. It is really an amazing experience to offer to the ones you love!
