Hot Stone Massage - what exactly is it?
The massage of the body with warm basalt and cold marble stones has a long-standing tradition. As early as 2000 BC, this technique was used to cause a positive effect on the body and to relieve tensions in the muscles. Because the intense heat of the stones penetrates through the skin into deeper layers of tissue into the muscles and connective tissue. This increases the elasticity of tendons and connective tissue as well as the mobility of joints and dilates blood vessels. In combination with special oil mixtures, Goat Butter Cool Energizing Body Balm and special massage strokes the treatment stimulates mind and soul.

Old Native American knowledge: release tensions with stones
Hot stone massage was already used by Indians and shamans. They believed that everything that exists has a soul. Accordingly, stones were not dead matter for them, but they believed the stones stored ancient knowledge, sent out messages and stimulated the self-healing power in people. If you want to feel these powers for yourself, all you have to do is to put a stone, which was warmed by the sun, on your skin. The body is immediately permeated by pleasant warmth.
Procedure and effects of a hot stone massage
Basalt stones, which are heated in a water bath to about 55° C, and ice-cooled marble stones are used in the Hot Stone Massage (or Sassi dei Vulcano). During the massage, the practitioner places the stones on specific energy points to harmonize the flow of energy and thus regulate certain functions of the body. Moreover, the stones are also used to directly massage the body. If used correctly, hot stone massage can relieve rheumatic complaints, have a positive effect on mental and stress-related tension in the muscles, support digestion and help with sleep disorders and stress.
