About Stone Massage
The hot stones used in this therapy are Basalt Lava Stones, which have been deposited in the rivers and oceans as a result of volcanic action. They have been washed and “tumbled” along the sea floor and riverbeds for thousands of years and are very smooth. Due to its composition Basalt will retain heat for a long period of time.
Cold stones are used in massage to help reduce inflammation, to “wake up” the tissues, stimulate the body and to help relieve pain.
