These super-sized stones can be used as massage or placement stones. Flat ovular basalt stones are the most popular choice of stones used by therapists as the flat, polished surface aids in heat retention and they are the most comfortable and convenient shaped stone to use. The elongated round shape fits perfectly in the palm of the hand and the rounded narrower edges can be used for pressure and kneading motions on, particularly tense muscles. Basalt stones have a volcanic origin and are the most recommended type for hot stone therapy. Their high ferruginous component, non-porous, smooth texture, combined with high heat retention ability make them ideal for hot stone massage. The ferruginous qualities of the stone will open blood vessels and increase blood flow, relaxing the muscles and mood. Perfectly rounded compressed stone shapes rarely occur in nature so our stones are hand molded to ensure each rock is a standard size and shape. This makes it more convenient for the therapist to handle and more comfortable to lie on the body.
