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.
