Hot Stones have been used for millennia to ease out tired aching muscles. The heated volcanic basalt stones are renowned for holding the heat so once they are warmed they become an amazing tool in the treatment of muscle tension and pain. They are also said to hold healing qualities which is why the ancient tribes would use them in every treatment they carried out.
