The therapist uses hot stones (gently warmed up) with massage movements to provide a deep and more intense treatment. The smooth, flat, heated stones are placed in specific places on the body and the heat causes the muscles to relax, which allows the practitioner to apply deeper and more precise pressure. The warmth from the stones also dilates the blood vessels, increases circulation and sedates the nervous system, which encourages relaxation. With the use of oils, the stones are glided across the meridian lines and placed on the chakra points to align and balance the chief energy centres, benefiting the whole body and mind.
