The Chinese dynasty “Shang”, Romans and Native American used to
utilize different types of stones at different temperatures with therapeutic
purposes. Healing stone massage uses hot basaltic lava stones; these
stones contain a high level of iron. This allows the stone to keep the
heat for more time. The heat and magnetic power of the stone
combined with the massage, fights the pain, relax the body and expand
the blood vessels and lymphatic system. It also revitalizes and
oxygenates the skin. Some stones are located in different parts of the
body (chakras) and others are moved by the therapist doing a massage.
The use of the stones adds a thermal and pressure effect.
