This is a unique healing procedure. This method is not just an effective treatment of many diseases with the help of massage, but also the attitude of hundreds of generations of people living in harmony with nature.
Even in ancient Mesopotamia, healers placed small hot stones on the patient’s body. Japanese monks used the properties of hot rocks of stones several millennia ago. The ancient Romans knew about the miraculous properties of stones, their medicinal properties were highly appreciated by Hippocrates and Pliny the Elder at the time. And the American Indians believed that stones are the result of the interaction of the four elements: born of the earth, they take turns absorbing the energy of the sun, water and wind, turning over time into a powerful source of cosmic energy.
Hot stones are laid out by a specialist under the back, and then laid out in a special way on the chakras using a special technique. Gradually relaxation comes, breathing becomes deeper and less frequent.
Hot stone massage begins with the feet, then moves to the shins, thighs, hands, arms. Hot stones slowly, with pressure, move through the body, leaving behind warmed relaxed muscles. Most often, the procedure does not cause sleep, but a state of “flight”. Then the master uses cold stones as well. Such contrasting effects are repeated several more times on different parts of the body, and at some stage it is no longer possible to understand which stones the master works with, hot or cold. Sensations are smoothed out, cold stones do not shock, but refresh. After the procedure, you can drink a glass of herbal tea. Ten minutes of rest – and as a result, the resulting charge of energy will last you for a whole week.
