The roots of Hot Stone Massage Therapy lie back in the deepest annals of human history. It is thought that heated clay was used since time immemorial to apply a localised thermal treatment that relaxed and soothed aching muscles. Therapeutic methods utilizing heated clay and basalt stones have been recorded over 2500 years ago and are still used today in hot stone massage techniques.
The basis for this treatment is that smallish smooth stones (usually of dense basalt that retains heat well) are heated to just over 50oC and strategically placed on the key energy points (Meridians/Energy pathways) of your body to balance the energy levels. The gentle pressure and warmth of these hot volcanic stones is very therapeutic, offering an excellent release mechanism that reduces tension and leave a feeling of well-being behind. There may be more to hot stone therapy than we realise because the benefits certainly speak for themselves and appear to exceed the obvious.
