Involves the application of water-heated basalt stones and/ or cold marble stones of varying sizes to key points on the body. The stones are massaged onto the body while others are placed as resting stones. The direct heat relaxes muscles, allowing manipulation of a greater intensity than with regular massage. This has a sedative effect on the nervous system. The cold stones cause the blood vessels to constrict, stimulating the nervous system and drawing blood and waste products along the body.
The minerals and piezoelectric qualities within the stone ensures that every cell in the body receives more oxygen and nutrients while at the same time waste material is removed more effectively, providing energy restoration.
