The hot Stone Aromatherapy Massage is a different take on the Holistic Aromatherapy massage, as smooth stones assist the therapist during the massage. The stones, are usually made of basalt. The stones are heated in hot water prior to massage. The stones may be placed on the body at key points, which are believed to be the energy centers of the body, to recreate the balance of the body and the mind. These specific points are often found on the back, in the palms and in between toes. The therapist will apply E.O, so the stones can glide smoothly along the skin and muscles. When the hot stones are placed on muscles below the skin, the muscles become relaxed, allowing therapists to apply deeper pressure, either by using the stones or simply the hands.
