  3. Hot Stone Massage

This is a treatment that combines common therapeutic massage with the application of stones on the skin at different elevated temperatures. This can help the flow of vital energy and alleviate physical and emotional disorders.

It’s important to note that the stones used for this therapy are special. They’re made of basalt, which is a type of volcanic rock with a flat and smooth shape. Beforehand, the massage therapist heats them to around 55 degrees Celsius.

The therapist applies them to specific areas of the body, such as the spine, chest, face, palms, and feet. They will hold the stones in their hands and then place them on the clients body. They can also combine hot stone massage with Swedish massage, vibrations, or circular movements.

This practice has become popular thanks to its relaxing effects on the body, in addition to its properties in terms of energy renewal. However, there are many other benefits as well, such as:

  • Muscular Pain relief
  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Greater Joint Flexibility
  • Improved quality of sleep
  • Improved blood circulation
