The Genesis of Hot Stone Therapy
The use of stones for healing traces back thousands of years, spanning diverse cultures from Native American traditions to ancient Chinese medicine. These civilizations recognized the stone's ability to retain heat and believed in its power to draw out negative energies, restoring balance to the body.
The Shanti Spa Experience
Volcanic basalt stones, known for their heat retention properties, are carefully selected. These stones are heated to a temperature that stimulates but never scalds the skin.
The warm stones are strategically placed on key energy points, known as chakras, and are also used to massage the body. The heat penetrates deep into the muscles, melting away tension and stress.
