Massage is one of the oldest healing arts dating back 3,000 years, its use is documented within Chinese and many other cultures. As an accepted part of many physical rehabilitation programs, People use massage therapy for a variety of health-related purposes, including to relieve pain, rehabilitate sports injuries, reduce stress, increase relaxation, address anxiety and depression and aid general wellness. And, as many millions will attest, massage also helps relieve the stress and tension of everyday living that can lead to disease and illness.
Hot Stone Massage - The thermal benefit of heat on the body has been used for years. This treatment uses Basalt stones formed from volcanic molten rocks which contain iron ore which is an excellent conductor of heat. The application of hands in conjunction with the stones produces an intensified contact. The unique energies of the stones combined with the universal energy will assist with the energy flow in the body and as a result, direct the vital energy movements to the area of the blockage. The vibrational energy moves between the stones and the clients body and negative energy is released as the vibrations move in and out of the body. Complete homeostasis is achieved as the body facilitates self-healing and repair.
