ANCIENT ORIGINS

For thousands of years, the Hawaiian people have used hot stones to heal both body and spirit. Using volcanic stones from their rich environment they performed hot stone massages to soothe muscle tension and calm the mind. They discovered early on the benefits of hot stones: improved circulation and lymph flow, relief from muscle pain, and a meditative calmness inspired from the warmth of the stones. The treatment has been a pillar of healing for millennia because of its effectiveness. Hot stones cause blood vessels to dilate, and the resulting increase in circulation causes improved nutrient, oxygen and antibody flow throughout the body. Over time, many cultures, especially East Asian ones, have either independently learned of these benefits or observed others and adopted the practice. In certain communities, hot stones are known to stimulate energetic flow through meridians and chakras.
