Massage with the help of “hot stones” has rapidly gained popularity. No wonder, because the combination of pleasant radiating warmth, spiced oils, soft pressure and supple massage movements provides a total feeling of relaxation and rest. The hot stones themselves are perfectly smooth, round black basalt stones of volcanic origin that can absorb warmth easily and deliver it quite gradually. They are warmed to a comfortable 40 – 50 degrees centigrade. Your body is being “wrapped” into them and then massaged locally with them. The warmth of the stones intensifies the massage by the “depth effect” on your muscles and joints.
