The hot stone massage is a type of massage treatment that uses heated stones made of basalt. These stones are volcanic and good at absorbing heat. This kind of therapy can be found to be used by Native Americans for centuries. This kind of massage requires an expert hand, and it is not an easy procedure to master. The stone is sanitized and placed in hot water measuring up to 250 degrees. After this, the heated stone is placed on specific parts of the body beginning with the spine of the client. These parts may include the stomach, chest, face, palms and even the feet and toes. The hot stone massage is considered to be excellent for the heart and it reduces stress and anxiety in the elderly.
