Hot stone therapy treats the body and the mind
Stones have been used to take care of the body in different cultures for thousands of years. The touch of stone relaxes muscles, the body and the mind efficiently.
During a hot stone massage, different parts of the body are treated with smooth and heated stones. The stones can be placed for example on the face, palms, feet, chest, spine or stomach. The areas can be treated with the stones by long strokes, circular movements or tapping.
Hot stone therapy has many benefits. The treatment relieves muscle tension and reduce muscle spasms, increases blood circulation and helps to increase range of motion. Hot stone therapy can also reduce stress and help with sleeping problems.
