Hot Stone massage originated in India and China and has been around for centuries; ancient civilizations believed that hot stones cleansed the body and relaxed the heart, grounding the soul and soothing the mind. As the name implies, the treatment involves using smooth stones which are heated and are used to massage the lower leg and to carry out the reflexology.
What is Hot Stone Reflexology?
This is where hot stones are either incorporated into a reflexology treatment or are used for thewhole treatment with no thumb walking. The treatment is extremely relaxing and also feels wonderful.
Traditionally stones have been heated in a water heater (similar to a slow cooker) which means the treatment has not been suitable for mobile therapists. However working with a Vulsini hot stone heating bag (which does not need water and just needs to be plugged in) means hot stones can be easily used as a mobile treatment.
