When your muscles are tense, due to stress, tension, & bad posture such as sitting for long periods of time at a computer, the muscle fibres become hard and develop knots, resulting in sore, stiff, painful areas, with reduced blood supply, and toxic acids build up, compounding the situation. The hot stones draw fresh blood to the area being worked,(vasodilatation) bringing with it oxygen, and nutrients which nourishes the tissues and aids the release of stored and locked in wastes from tense muscles, draining with it the toxins and waste products which have been trapped in the tense muscles fibres. This reduces inflammation and encourages a further influx of fresh oxygenated blood. Resulting in soft free flowing muscle tissue. It is this response within our body, which works as a catalyst to assist the body in self-healing.
How it works
Hot Stone Therapy is extremely energising and warming for the body; it nourishes the soul and relaxes the mind. By using the stones in combination with traditional massage techniques, hot stone massage is able to reach deeper levels than a regular massage. Hot Stone is ideal for back pain, stress related conditions and sluggish systems. Stone Therapy is far more than a massage with hot stones; it is a multidimensional treatment that reaches the very soul.
Basalt lava stones are volcanic, erupted from the belly of 'mother earth'. That has been subjected to immense geological pressures. Hot basalt lava stones are used for their penetrative warmth to help release deep muscular tension, congestion and improve the general circulation. They have a unique vibration energy, which brings balance and energizes the body. There is something deeply spiritual about being cocooned in the heat of these lava stones, as if enveloped by a warm embrace in the arms of Mother Earth.
