Volcanic stones massage originated in the Orient where it was believed to exist seven energy points called Chakras along the body. The energy points are associated with specific locations on the body. The Chakra energy communicates with the body via energy channels.
Hot stone massage is used to relax the body as well as a treatment.
Therefore some of the stones are placed on the patient’s body in the seven key locations called Chakra energy points. In Oriental culture, it is believed that the seven chakra points are associated with a vital organ and stimulating these points improve the well-being of the body. The remaining stones are used in a rhythmic relaxation massage. The size and shape of the stones chosen during each part of the treatment depend on the area of the body.
