HOT STONE THERAPY
Ayurveda is a holistic system of healing, which evolved in India about 3 – 5,000 years ago. It looks at each person, as a unique individual and focuses on establishing and maintaining balance of life energies. It seeks to heal the fragmentation and disorder of the mind-body complex and restore wholeness and harmony. The main objectives of this science are preservation of health and prevention of disease.
Hot stone therapy is one of the fastest growing new therapies in Europe. The treatment has ancient roots and stones have been used for warmth and healing since the beginning of time. The Japanese use stones to warm their abdomens to aid digestion and the Chinese have been using hot stones to relieve muscular pain for some 4,000 years. Lots of people carry stones for good fortune or for healing: we even use pumice stones on our feet to help us get rid of unwanted hard skin.
It is estimated that one stroke with a hot stone is worth ten strokes with the hand.

Hot Stone Therapy can utilize heat-retaining warm basalt stones, as well as chakra balancing, semi precious stones and crystals.
Thermal conduction in the warm stones brings about local and systemic changes in the body, it also influences the energy centres for the body and mind balancing. The use of massage techniques, in conjunction with the stones helps produce energy that assists and directs vital flow to areas of blockage.
The heated stones by giving their heat and electromagnetic energy to the client, virtually ‘feed’ the person, encouraging relaxation and bringing a sense of peace.
The treatment is known for concentrating on the channels (meridians) and energy centres (chakras) of the body. It promotes well being for the whole individual as opposed to just physical benefits
