In this treatment basalt stones are used as they distribute heat evenly.
This deeply relaxing therapy uses the heat of the basalt stones to warm the body and activate Qi which aids in balancing the moving through the body’s meridians and organs. This assists in the client relaxing mentally, physically and energetically.
The heat from the stones allows the therapist to work deeply on areas tension. This is also referred to as a “detoxing treatment, as it aids the body in releasing toxins which have built up in the body due to the stresses of every day living.
This treatment can also increase the body’s metabolism. By increasing the circulation to the bodies organs , the system can function both more efficiently and more effectively.
In some cases hyperaemia (redness) may show on clients following treatments. These are NOT burns!!!!! The heat of the stones relieves congestion in the tissues and organs during the treatment, which may be present for a short time after their treatment due to increased circulation in the area.
I have noticed that if an area remains red, this usually indicates an area of high congestion and may require some extra work.
As it is usually towards the end of the treatment that the areas of congestion become apparent, I generally advise clients to use one of the following to continue the work this treatment has started for them.
* Use a heat pack on the area and do some gentle stretching.
* Regular massage to aid in decongesting the body’s tissues.
* Therapeutic baths. I recommend the use of epsom salts. Approximately 1lb per
! Precaution. Therapeutic Baths are not recommended for those who suffer from low blood pressure. As the electrolyte content of the salts leads to reduced blood pressure this can cause light headedness or fainting.
