Heated Stone Massage
Heated stone massage is a natural therapy in which warmed stones are positioned on parts of the client's body to maximize the therapeutic benefit.
The stones used are typically river rocks or other very smooth-surfaced stones made of basalt.
These stones are heated in sanitizing water before use. The high iron content in basalt helps the stones retain heat during the massage.
Heated stone massages are beneficial on both physical and psychological levels.
Massage therapy can result in mental benefits as well as physical ones in many people. You may find that the relaxation afforded to you through a heated stone massage helps ease some of your mental stress and tension.
A heated stone massage may also help you combat some of the symptoms of anxiety disorders and depression.
