Hot Stone Therapy
Hot Stone Therapy involves the use of heated basalt stones, a volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat. Basalt Stones have been used for therapeutic purposes for many years. In Hot Stone Therapy, the practitioner positions the stones on chakra and/or other energetic areas of the body. This therapy promotes profound relaxation, increased detoxification by way of increasing blood and lymphatic circulation, and relief of long-standing muscular tension, stress and fatigue. Mind body balance is easy to achieve with Hot Stone Therapy alone or when combined with other modalities.
Reiki is a gentle yet profound method of natural healing introduced through the gentle touch of the practitioner’s hands which stimulates "life force energy" or "ki" to flow. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Reiki is an ancient art of Japanese healing. Reiki has been moving gradually into mainstream medicine due to its proven ability to accelerate healing, boost the immune system, and alleviate all kinds of stress.
Combined Hot Stone Therapy and Reiki
Combining these two therapies provides an extra healing advantage. Placing heated stones on the energy areas while integrating Reiki permits the healing, therapeutic energy to penetrate and enter and the undesirable energy to withdraw from the client with greater ease. The combined therapies facilitate ease in the body/mind and promote physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being.
