Where did Stone Massage come from?
Dubai Massage Therapy hot stones are heated up by fire. Fire was also used by Native Americans to heal aching sore muscles, but the main idea of the rejuvenation of hot stones in massage is created by a woman in the name of Mary Nelson, a native from Arizona.

A hot stone massage can only be properly given by a certified Therapist because of the difficulty to make sure all the procedures are followed. Dubai Massage Therapy can say from experience that people remember the Hot Stone Massage the most because of the unique special feeling they received from the Massage.
Hot Stone Massage, how does it work:
Simple application of hot stones to the skin is beneficial but the effects are intensified when gentle pressure and massage are used. The heat energy radiating from the stones is carried by the blood into the deeper layers of the body stimulating the circulatory system and metabolic processes.
The longer the warm stones stay on the body, the deeper the penetration of the muscle tissue and joints. The heat results in the increased blood flow causing vasodilatation (widening) of the blood vessels. This in turn allows for an improved delivery of nutrients and removal of waste products (detoxification) from the various parts and tissues of the body. The presence of red and white blood cells increases and the raised levels of oxygen in the area improve cell metabolism by 10 – 15%.
The heat from the stones helps the energy flow through the body and promotes a meditative and calm state.
