Chinese Hot Stone Massage


Stone Massage goes back over 3000 years to China, where the oldest massage tool, dating back to around 2000 BC, was found.

This tool was made of a stone called Jade.

It is thought that the stone was used both hot and cold to lie on whilst a therapist performed a massage treatment on tense, tired and sore muscles.

Since then the Chinese started using many different stones including basalt and marble as a healing tool in massage.
