A piece of history
This massage is originating from the Indians. Heated lava stone were used to massage the body. These stones will retain the heat and therefor have a positive effect for chronic pain in de neck and back and it will help you relax more. The hot stone massage will be done with basalt stones. Basalt stones are volcanic stones that have been polished through the ages through the influence of water and sand. The size of the stones is varies between 2 cm and 12 cm.
The stones are made of basalt and are rich of iron and mangesium. This will let then store, retain and gradually give of heat. These stones are carefully selected on the base of form, weight, thermal conductivity and energy level. The stones are light, soft and pleasantly warm.
They have then been in the sea for a long time and that’s why the stones have such a nice, smooth and round figure. Indians believed the stones to be formed through the four elements: earth, wind, water and fire.
