About Hot and Cold Stone Massage:
The application of warmed Basalt stones and cold marble stones combined with manual massage to provide the client with a deeply relaxing, therapeutic experience. This treatment also benefits the therapist not only financially but also physically.
As a contemporary therapy, hot and cold stone massage was introduced to the world of spa treatments by Mary Nelson in 1993. The therapeutic use of stones and rocks has, however, been employed for thousands of years in various forms.
The technique utilises smooth warm ‘basalt stones’ in the therapist’s hands to massage the client’s body; the heat gently penetrating the skin and muscles, helping the recipient to relax quickly and effectively.
Basalt stones are the stones of choice for hot stone massages because basalt retains heat better than any other type of stone and they have a smooth texture.
