Three-dimensional Hot Stone Massage takes the superb art of massage to a new level. This particular form of hot stone massage is a dance of grace and reverence where stones seem to appear out of midair. Working three-dimensionally enables therapists to embrace both sides of the body at once with the stones, utilize gravity and weight to gain depth and reduce strain on the hands. Managing stones with this unique retrieval system creates an uninterrupted flow that allows therapists to stay much more attentive to their clients rather than just the stones. Invisible stone entrance and overlapping transitions create a seamless hot stone massage experience like no other.
