Hot Stone Therapy
The concept of massage therapy using stones has been practiced in different cultures for many years. Tribal Healers and Village wise women used
rocks from the riverbeds and warmed them either in hot coals or hot water. By then placing the hot stones on cloth on the body and arranging
them along the energy points of the body, this would help to relax the muscles and reduce pain or discomfort, and therefore support the healing
Hot Stone therapy is technically termed as Geothermotherapy, that is the use of heated stones and chilled stones to affect a chemical release
within the human body. The placing of the stones is often followed by a holistic massage, which results in a deeper and more intense treatment.
