The History

 

Using stones for ancient rituals, worship and healing has been traced back as far as 1500 BC.  The thermal benefit of heat on the body has been used as a therapy for thousands of years. In 1993 a therapist named Mary Nelson researched and developed incorporating the use of warmed stones when carrying out a Swedish massage. This resulted in a massage which delivered a deep level of relaxation and homeostasis.Foxy's Fit for Five, Hot Stone Therapy, Bristol & Teddington

 

The stones are formed from volcanic molten rock that has been eroded over thousands of years by rivers and seas in South America.  The stones contain iron ore, a conductor of heat which results in creating natural heat penetration.  The heated volcanic stones transfer thermal energy to the depths of the body which in turn stimulates the circulation system, cell functions, metabolism and tissue repair.

 

Physiological Benefits

 

During a treatment vasodilation occurs.  This is the widening of the blood vessels which in turn, increases the blood flow around the body, flushing out waste products and cleansing internal organs.  Circulation is improved.

 

Metabolism increases, therefore the rate at which the body processes foods, eliminates toxins and burns energy is also improved.

 

The heat enables the muscles to relax which reduces stress and promotes a feeling of wellbeing and nurturing.
