The combination of warm oil and Basalt stones to soften, release and lift away any tension from the body’s muscles. Hot stone massages are beneficial on both physical and psychological levels, the heat from the stones helps your muscles to relax, allowing the massage therapist to manipulate your deep tissues more effectively.
The premise behind hot stone massage therapy is that the direct heat of the stones relaxes muscles, allowing the therapist access to their deeper muscle layers. Combining hot stone protocols with a full body massage provides a very healing and effective experience. The hot stones also expand blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body. The hot stones have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.
