Hot Stone Massage- an ancient way to relaxation

Posted on

What is Hot Stone Massage?

Hot Stone Massage is an ancient massage technique that uses the warmth of basalt rocks to give the body an intense and relaxing treatment. It is a great treatment to relax tightened muscles, increase blood flow and is used to reduce stress, anxiety and pain. It is suitable for many health conditions and is an easy way to leave a stressful day behind.

The use of lava and basalt stones for healing purposes is thousands of years old. Evidence shows that the Chinese already used this technique more than 2000 years ago, stating an improvement of internal organ function. 

In the early 1990's Hot Stone Massage was reborn, after the introduction of LaStone Therapy by Mary Nelson. Since then it gained more and more popularity, creating a huge audience in the Beauty as well as the Health and Wellness industry.
