Stone therapy is a thermotherapy, using stones to provide both heat and cold, the combination of alternating temperatures can be very beneficial. The stones are placed on the client according to their needs and, when used with massage, can provide benefits that are not possible through normal massage. The heated stones are used on key acupressure sites and the heat relaxes the muscles, allowing for a much deeper massage. Heated stones can also be placed on the body’s chakras, or energy points, working with the body’s natural energy to create balance both physically and mentally.
