Hot Stone Massage is a very grounding and nurturing experience. The simple weight of a stone on your abdomen or back can bring awareness to the area, promoting relaxation and tranquility. Heat added to the pressure will bring the awareness deeper into the body and create even more relaxation.
Using hot stones allows the massage therapist to work deep into the muscle tissue. You will feel deeply relaxed and the effects of the massage tend to last up to three days.
There are many benefits of Hot Stone Massage, including…
History of the Hot Stone Massage – The Chinese were using small stones over 4,000 years ago to work on the meridians and bring wellness to the organs and muscles. The healer would heat the stone and press it into acu-points to balance the energy in the body and detoxify the organs. Eventually these practices evolved to using needles and became acupuncture.
The Native American Indian tribes had medicine men, or women depending on the tribe, that would use stones in their healing ceremonies. The use of the stones and the actual ceremony is held very sacred. The Native American Indians honor the stones as a part of beautiful Mother Earth and use them with the understanding that they are to be respected, honored, and loved, as with all of nature.
