Hydrotherapy and the application of heat to the body to produce therapeutic effects can be traced to ancient times. Adding stones to your hand and foot massage protocol – or to manicures and pedicures - adds a medium for the application of heat and/or cold to the body. Your clients will experience the added benefit of heat and you’ll save your wrists and hands because you’re sharing the work with the stones. The combination of the heat from the stones, the essential oils, and the soothing massage action of stones and oils produces a deep and penetrating state of relaxation and well being – both for you and your clients.
The technique of using ‘hot stones’ combined with massage is one of the most requested and fastest growing spa services – and it has been around since ancient times.
