Therapeutic Advantages of Using Natural Stones
Natural basalt massage stones are formed during the rapid cooling of low-viscosity lava from volcanic eruptions. This makes the stones rich in magnesium and iron which are known for their healing properties. Natural stones will also have proportions of silica and oxygen, which again accentuate the therapeutic benefits of massage stones. These elements form naturally within the stone during the lava’s cooling process. This makes a natural stone better for massage therapy as it is complete, unlike cut stones which have had significant portions of their naturally formed properties removed. The cutting process will also have a detrimental effect on the residual energy within the stone.Natural basalt stones are fine-grained and relatively soft with a smooth surface which makes them an excellent tool for massage and hot stone therapies. They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, so there really is no reason to cut them other than for commercial or aesthetic purposes. In their natural form, massage stones are ideal for reviving, relaxing and relieving body tissues and muscles in a soothing, comfortable way.
