Hot Stone Massage | Massage Therapy | Fort Collins, CO
Hot Stone Massage involves the application of water-heated basalt stones of varying sizes placed on key points of the body, giving a deep massage and creating sensations of comfort and warmth.
This treatment dates back 5000 years to the Indian and Mayan cultures. Therapists used “tools” supplied by the earth to better heal and calm an individual. Their hands were only used for manipulation and some healing.
These rocks came from river beds and were warmed on hot coals. The stones were placed along the energy centers of the body, causing healing to occur. The stones seem to connect with the energy flow intended to balance the physical, emotional, and spiritual body.
The direct heat relaxes muscles, allowing manipulation of a greater intensity than with regular massage. Hot stones expand blood vessels, which push blood and waste through the nervous system. This gives the body a natural sedative.
Hot Stone Massage is a deep, healing massage technique that enhances awareness and brings us closer to our true nature.
