Ease Tense Muscles, Reduce Stress
While all massage is helpful for increasing circulation and blood flow, using hot stones elevates the entire experience. Typically, basalt volcanic rock stones are used for this treatment due to their ability to retain heat. The stones may be situated down one’s spine, on their chest or stomach, face, as well as on palms, feet, fingers and toes. The practitioner will learn how to utilize the stones in a variety of ways including: circular motions, broad, long strokes, vibration, kneading and tapping movements. The stones can be alternated between moving and stimulating to sitting still in specific places. Feel the tension release from the body as the gentle heat radiates throughout muscles, tissues, tendons and ligaments.
