Hot Stone Massage Therapy dates back to over 3000 years ago. Hot Stone Massage Therapy is also known as Hot Rock Massage Therapy and was used in ancient India and China, and more recently to the North American Indians living in the southwest states.
Hot Stone massage therapy combines the benefits of hydrotherapy and thermalism (or thermotherapy â€“ the use of heat applications) with the strokes of massage using Stones to create a deep, relaxing and healing treatment. The heat of the massage stones warms the skin, which allows for the absorption of moisturizing and therapeutic oils, while simultaneously preparing the musculature of the body so the massage therapist can work into the deeper muscle layers.
