Hot Stone Massage
The use of natural stones in conjunction with massage uses powerful earth energies to help the patient heal. Heat from stones also has the benefit of geomagnetism from the Earth source, which has a balancing and healing effect on our systems.
During this application it is worked on meridians. Hot Stones are warmed up to temperature of 50 to 55 °C and then they are used to massage of whole body.
There is nothing better in the winter time!
What to expect?
I begin by applying oil to the body, which allows the hot stones to glide smoothly along the muscles. You are lying face down, and I use the hot stones to massage the back. I do place stones into palms of your hand and chakras while providing the massage.
After the hot stones have relaxed the muscles, if necessary I may put down the stones and use my hands to directly massage the skin and muscles. After I finish your back, I will focus on back side of your legs.
You are then asked to turn over onto your back so I can continue on your feet, front side of your legs and if there is still a time massage include arms.
The whole massage is completed by short facial massage.
I use many stones of various shapes and sizes - big ones on the big muscles, smaller ones on smaller muscles.
The hot stones are never rough. They are always flat and smooth.
The stones are heated in an electrical heater that provides a temperature reading.
I always hold the stones first before touching them to your body, which ensure that the temperature will not be too hot.
Everyone, however, has their own comfort range. Be sure to speak up if the stones are too hot for you.
