    One of the massage types, which is becoming more and more popular with every passing day is the Stone Massage Therapy. The Therapy has usually two variants, Hot Stone Massage & Cold Stone Massage. Hot Stone Massage is more popular and does wonders in the cold season.

    stones1Usually the stones used in the therapy are well formed crystals of Basalt. Marble, Jade, Petosky and Sardonyx stones are also used. The stones vary in sizes, shapes and weights. The stones are kept at specific temperatures as per their function and nature, and the importance of the hygiene measures taken for them are also paramount .

    The stones are used in two ways. One, with the stones kept under the client and over a fabric, and the other, with the stones kept on top of the body of the clients on a fabric. The stones are usually lined up with the spinal column of the body and are placed in coherence with the chakras or the energy centers of the body in Ayurveda and Tantra, as the massage to the extensions of the body is carried out simultaneously.

    The massage is usually highly customized in nature, with the pressure levels kept as per the client needs. The heat from the stones imply a soothing effect on the muscles and the nerves and increases the circulation of the blood in the area to which the stone is being applied. The relaxation this kind of massage provides to the mind is really an out-of-this-world feeling. You must have one to learn about the feeling.
