Hot Stone Massage - Now in Doncaster East
The use of hot stones for healing dates back to ancient times in India and China, and more recently by the North American Indians. Smooth, heated basalt (stones rich in iron which retains heat) or river stones (used because they are so smooth) are placed on key points of the body to relax muscles and increase blood flow in those areas.
The therapist then uses the warm stones
to massage the body at a depth which is requested by the
client. It may be of the lightest pressure, or deeper for
areas where there is a lot of tension. The warmth of the
stones may help to improve circulation, aid in
mental relaxation and accelerate the healing
People generally request a Hot Stone Massage for relaxation as they find the heat from the stones very comforting. Hot Stone Massage is great for people who feel the cold. People who would like relief from tension but only want light pressure would enjoy and benefit from a Hot Stone Massage at Souri’s Myotherapy & Massage in Doncaster East, Melbourne.
The heat from the hot stones also
allows the therapist to deliver a deeper massage to those in need
