An Introduction to Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage originated many thousands of years ago from many different cultures from the world including the Egyptians, the Native Americans, the Chinese and the Incas.
Healers used stones from the rivers, heating them in coals or hot water and placing them on the energy centres to releases pain and muscle tension.
Used for both spiritual and physical balancing.
They were used in rituals.
The stones are formed from volcanic molten rock that has been eroded over thousands of years by rivers and seas.
Nowadays the lovely rounded basalt stones, rich in iron, are sourced from south America and used for the hot stone therapy as they have the property to retain heat.
