Hot stone massage is a modern therapy using warmed stones and positioning them on certain parts of the client’s body to create a healing effect. These stones are heated in sanitized water with essential oils, having antiseptic as well as therapeutic properties prior to use. The high iron content in basalt (the most commonly used type of stones) helps the stones retain heat during the massage. This hot stone therapy is beneficial on both a physical and psychological level, providing a deep sense of muscular relaxation, alleviating stiffness and rigidity. On a mental and psychological level, it supports tranquility of the mind, usually instilling restful sleep.
