Hot stone massage is one of the most relaxing and indulgent massages. It originates from India and its history dates back as far as 5000 years. During the session, the masseur uses smooth, flat heated stones, which are placed on specific points on the body. The stones are then moved along the body’s energy channels, unblocking them and allowing free flow of energy, which, according to Far Eastern medicine, is necessary for the proper functioning of the body.
The stones used during the massage are usually volcanic rocks which are able to maintain their temperature perfectly. During the treatment, heat penetrates into the deeper layers of the skin, allowing the blood vessels to expand, thereby making muscles better nourished and oxygenated.
The natural essential oils used during the massage penetrate deep into the skin, improve its elasticity and firmness, leaving it perfectly moisturised and nourished.
