HOT STONE MASSAGE
This is a massage using oil and heated basalt stones. Basalt is a volcanic stone formed from cooled, molten lava, that when heated retains its heat longer than other stone, therefore perfect to use in a massage.
The heat from the stones allows manipulation of a greater intensity than with basic massage movements.
One stroke with a heated stone is equal to ten normal massage strokes.
The treatment is said to be ten times deeper and the results are said to last ten times longer than traditional techniques.
