Basalt stones are real volcanic stones composed of pure lava. They are very smooth, contain a high level of iron and store heat for up to 45 minutes.
To warm them, the massage stones are immersed in water whose temperature varies between 50 and 65 degrees. The hot stones are then placed on sensitive or even painful points of the body such as the belly, back, hands, feet and forehead.
The heat radiates to the body and allows you to completely relax. By alternating cold marble stones, the body can thus benefit from the benefits of thermotherapy.
The benefits of hot stone massage are manifold. It allows you to let go, detoxify the body and improve blood circulation. Several diseases and certain pains are also treated thanks to this massage technique, including: Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Insomnia, Muscle pain, Stress-related diseases.
However, not everyone can take advantage of the therapeutic properties: People suffering from diabetes, respiratory or cardiac problems should avoid this type of massage. This is also the case for pregnant women.
