The stones used are called basalt stones, which have over time become naturally smooth and polished by water. They have a high content of iron, which allows for containment of heat.
During the treatment, the basalt stones are heated and placed over specific points on the body. The rest of the body is then massaged using hot stones. As the stones cool they are replaced with hot ones. This delightful treatment will leave you warm and relaxed from the inside out.
