About Hot Stones Massage

Stone Therapy Massage dates back to more than 3000 years ago and originates in India and China, and more recently with the North American Indians.  The treatment has recently become increasingly popular throughout Europe and North America.

Learning the use of hot stones opens up a range of treatments to offer as it can be incorporated into the many complementary treatments available.  The techniques used will greatly depend on the level of training and experience that the therapist has, i.e., an aromatherapist or sports therapist can use all the massage techniques learnt with the additional experience of using hot stones.  This treatment works extremely well alongside therapies which focus on the chakras and meridians, such as reflexology, Indian head massage, crystal healing and aromatherapy, as hot stones therapy focuses on re-energising and balancing the body.  It can also be incorporated into beauty treatments such as facials, manicures and pedicures.

This therapy focuses on aiding the client to balance all levels of their mind, body & spirit – emotional, mental, physical & spiritual energies, assisting in unlocking blocked memories.

The therapy can virtually eliminate the stresses and strains on the therapists hands, wrists and arms as the stones and the heat variation do all the heavy work for them.

The benefits of the treatment include:  increased local circulation, an improvement of blood flow to the surrounding tissues and a greater ability to transport toxins and waste products from the area.
