A stone therapy session uses cold or water-heated stones to apply pressure and heat to the body. Basalt (volcanic) stones are warmed to a temperature of around 50 degrees celsius in a purpose-made stone heater filled with water. The Hot Stone practitioner then places some of the stones on key points on the client’s body. The therapist will also use warm stones to massage the body.

Cold Stone Therapy:

When cold stones are placed on your skin, it triggers vasoconstriction; the narrowing of blood vessels. After the cold stones are removed, the blood vessels dilate again, supplying the affected areas with fresh blood and oxygen. This process increases circulation.
