Thai Hot Stone Massage

At Thai Orchid Massage, we offer hot stone massage in Elwood to help improve circulation and restore relaxation to the nervous system. Therapeutic Thai hot stone massage has evolved from many forms of massage and many native ancient cultures such as Japan, India and the Americas. Its healing is beneficial to both the mind and body. Hot stone massage therapy is so called due to the use of smooth, flat heated stones placed on specific parts of the body where meridians lie. The rocks used are usually basalt stones, which is a form of volcanic rock that maintains heat. The warmth aids relaxation, removes tension and calms damaged soft tissues. The placement of the stones can also help boost the flow of energy throughout the body and remove physical, emotional or spiritual blockages. During hot stone body massage, the warmth of the stones helps muscles to relax, allowing the practitioner to work intensely into your muscles to get rid of knots and blockages.
