The heated stones with the therapist's flowing movements bring you into the ultimate state of relaxation by using them as an extension of his/her hands to massage the body. The stones can also be used as placement stones, laying on top of certain areas. The heat deeply penetrates the muscles, allowing deeper work to be performed by breaking up adhesions or "knots" in the body. Often seen as a form of energy work, the stones are very therapeutic, carrying their own vibrations and allowing for an extremely relaxing massage session.
