AROMATIC HOT STONE MASSAGE
Stone therapy is an ancient therapy that has been used across the cultures from Native American tribes to the ancient Roman baths. Native American women used warm stones to sooth menstrual pain and Pilgrims used hot stones to warm their feet in bed. In China, hot stones were used to relieve tired muscles 2000 years BC.
Aromatic Hot Stone Massage combines the benefits of the essential oils with the energetic warmth of Basalt stones: it increases circulation and metabolism, releases tension, induces relaxation, enhances the lymphatic system and promotes the body’s natural healing. A truly relaxing and therapeutic massage, that enhances the senses, softens the skin and induces toxins elimination.
Geo-Thermal Stone Therapy is a contemporary approach alternating hot and
cold temperatures in massage. It is designed to aid the body's Circulatory System, the Endocrine System and the Digestive System. How is this achieved? 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. The cold stones cause the blood vessels to constrict, stimulating the nervous system and drawing blood and waste products along the body. The "vascular gymnastics" that is attained by the use of alternating hot and cold stones goes beyond what bare hands achieve in the traditional body therapies. The therapeutic potential of this treatment is extraordinary.
