More About Hot Stone Massage

 


 

Tibetan Himalayan Hot Stone Massage

The treatment draws on traditions described in the ancient Tibetan medical text, the Gui Shi. Developed through the collaboration of Tibetan doctors and Joanna Claire, a certified acupuncturist and massage therapist who has lived in the Himalayas for over 20 years, the treatment uses 48 hot stones and fragrant herbs and oil to relieve tension from the body. Hand-carved by a monk in Katmandu, the soft river stones are marked with eight auspicious symbols.

Applied to key points on the body, the heated stones create sensations of comfort and warmth; expand blood vessels and calm the nervous system. This treatment restores well-being and harmony to the body and is usually a 90 minute treatment.
