HOT STONE TREATMENT
One of the first recorded uses of stones for healing was by Ancient Chinese medical practitioners who regularly used various shaped/sharpened stones (Bian Stones) to treat disease. Heated stones on the lower abdomen were used by Native Americans to relieve cramps and the Hawaiians have had a major part to play in how this type of massage is applied today.
A modern-day Hot Stone Massage normally consists of the therapist using heated stones, of various shapes and sizes, on the client's body, the heat from the stones is released deep into the muscles and greatly enhances the massage.
It is usually a very grounding, relaxing and healing experience, with many clients amazed at the level of relaxation achieved.
