Stone massage involves the application of water-heated basalt stones of varying sizes placed on key points of the body, giving a deep massage and creating sensations of comfort and warmth.The heat that is directed by the stones relaxes the muscles, allowing manipulation that is more intensified than a regular massage.

In some cases of muscular injury and inflammation cold marble stones are used. The cold stones cause the blood vessels to constrict, stimulating the nervous system and drawing blood and waste products along the body.The warmer stones expand the blood vessels, pushing blood and unwanted waste materials through the body. This has a sedative effect on the nervous system.

This ensures that every cell in the body receives more oxygen and nutrients while at the same time waste material is removed more effectively through the corresponding increase in lymph flow. Not unlike changing the old oil and filter in your car for a newer filter with clean oil—a service for the body.

It is quite an experience to feel the deeply relaxing, penetrating heat from the basalt stones alternating with the toning and refreshing coolness of the marble stones. The use of extremes of temperature has long been scientifically and medically proven to be of benefit to the body. Those who wish to relax and tone their muscles with a minimum of effort see this in the use of ice packs for muscle trauma and the use of saunas.

Stone massage makes you feel deeply relaxed, allowing you to let go of all the stress that is held within your body. It is really an amazing experience to offer to the ones you love!
