Hot Stone Massage Services
Developed in the Midwest for use in health spas, this technique uses stones that have been heated. These stones are positioned on the body and some are gently moved about with light pressure being exerted on the warm stones.*
This technique was most likely inspired by the Native American sweat lodge ceremony. In the heating preparation of stones, the use of the four elements fire, water, air and earth is an integral part of the ritual. From time to time elders may pass a perfectly round hot stone around the circle for all to rub anywhere they may have pain or discomfort.
