What is Hot Stone Therapy?
Hot Stone massage is widely recognized as a holistic modality with therapeutic benefits. The application of heat to the body causes vasodilation. This means that blood vessels in the body expand and dilate. As a result, sweating and circulation both increase and metabolism quickens. Ultimately, the muscle tissues relax and provide a sedative and relaxing effect on the body. Basalt stones are the ideal choice for Hot Stone Massage because of their smoothness and inherent ability to retain heat.
