Hot Stone Massage
Since the beginning of time as a species we have used the healing powers of our earth to heal our bodies, minds, and spirits. Hot Stone Massage returns us to this idea.
What it is:
Hot stone massage is a specialty massage where the therapist uses smooth, heated stones, either as an extension of their own hands, or by placing them on the body while they massage other parts of the body. The heat can be both deeply relaxing and help warm tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply, more quickly.
History of Hot Stone Massage:
Hot stones warmed by fire were used by Native Americans to treat aching muscles, but the modern revival of hot stones in massage is generally credited to Mary Nelson, a native of Tucson, Arizona. She trademarked her style of hot stone massage, called LaStone Therapy, which has a Native American spiritual component and requires training and certification.
What to expect in a Hot Stone Massage session:
Sink deep into relaxation as the warmth of basalt stones help open and relax your muscles. You will experience the grounding power of mother nature, as your muscle tension melts away. This spa treatment combines fire, water, and earth to provide the pinnacle of relaxation and long-lasting therapeutic benefits. You will practically melt!
Use to treat:
The heat of the stones help penetrate even the tightest of muscles resulting from any number of causes from overuse, acute or chronic injuries or general stress and tension. The use of volcanic stones reconnects you to the earth, having a powerful grounding effect.
