Hot stone massage therapy has been used in many different cultures for many years. Healers used rocks from the river beds and warmed them either in hot coals or hot water. Placing the hot stones on cloth on the body and arranging them along the energy centres of the body would help to relax the muscles and reduce pain or discomfort, boosting a healing process. Hot stones expand the blood vessels, helping to move blood faster round the body, sedating the nervous system
I use the stones to massage the body which can be deeper and more intense as heat penetrates the body and relaxes the muscles.
