It is commonly believed that the origins of Hot Stone Massage has grown from Native American indigenous traditions. The alternate application of heated and chilled temperatures is known as Thermotherapy and was an integral part of Hippocrates beliefs.
Stone Therapy Massage combines the use of hot and cold Basalt stones with traditional Swedish massage techniques to bring about deep relaxation and balance to the mind , body and spirit of the individual. The stone sits between the therapist’s hand and the client. The stones may also be placed in strategic positions on top and beneath the body to assist with the creating of a therapeutic and holistic effect.
