The oldest healing technique in the world is…the touch! For millions of years people used their hands, the heat and stones as therapeutic tools. Today the stone massage with is perhaps the most famous technique and at the same time most "misunderstood" in terms of its benefits. Many people consider it as a relaxing, trendy technique, unfortunately within them many therapists. But the truth is that the experienced and open-minded professionals will find in Stones a valuable ally in the healing process.
 
 
 
STONE MASSAGE
 
 
 
 
SESSION and BENEFITS:
 
A session with Hot Stones (as we use to call it) can be done with Hot, Warm or Cold Stones. In the first two cases the stones are from Basalt and in the third case from white-green Marble. Basalt is volcanic stone and was chosen for its capacity to maintain and transfer the heat with a delightful way, and due to its origins carries the ‘memory ' of heat , and therefore its energy and quality. White-Green premium quality marble is used for the cold stones sessions due to its ability to maintain low temperature. That’s why the Romans used this marble to build the famous Roman Baths so they could have permanently cold water. The stones are sleek, various sizes and shape and cooked in a special container fitted with electronic thermostat for ultimate security. In a session used 120-130 rocks and the duration is at least 60 minutes. During the session the therapist puts the stones in "strategic" points to mobilize the energy and prepare the muscles and joints. The placement is combined with massage with hands and/or with stones, depending on the case. The combination with various massage techniques such as Swedish, Deep tissue, Shiatsu and Lymphatic is very effective.
