Hot Stone Massage involves the application of water-heated basalt stones of varying sizes to key points on the body, giving a deep massage and creating sensations of comfort and warmth. These treatment dates back 5,000 years to the Indian and Mayan cultures. These therapists used “tools” provided from the earth to better heal and calm; their hands were only used for manipulation and some healing. These stones seem to connect with the flow of energy to rebalance the physical body, emotional mind and spirit as one. These stones can also be effective when used during Reflexology treatments to de-stress and stimulate tiny nerve endings in the feet.
