Hot Stone Bag, the original hot stone heating bag.
a way to make hot stone massage mobile.
easier and more convenient storage
we born out of the desire to make hot stone massage therapy mobile. With the only professional option on the market being a hot stone water heater, we looked to create something unique and flexible enough to open hot stone massage up to possibilities that have not been options before.
After consulting with hot stone lecturers and therapists, as well as researching into the history of hot stone massage, it was clear that water for heating stones was not necessary. We found that by not using water, the whole process of preparing for a hot stone massage was more efficient, saving the therapist time and money.
Eventually, after 2 years of research and development, we launched our Hot Stone Bag, the original hot stone heating bag.
Benefits of the Bag
The obvious advantage of our Bag is that finally there is a way to make hot stone massage mobile. But have you also considered the following benefits?
Equipment: Due to the stones being warmed by a dry heat and having an in-built thermometer, there is no more need for the following traditionally used equipment: thermometer, gloves, scoops, nets etc.
Increased productivity: Not only does the Bag take less time to set up, but unlike a water stone heater, the bag can be transported whilst retaining heat even after its been disconnected from the mains, allowing the therapist to preheat the stones at home, thus saving time (and money!) at the clients house. See our quick formula (right) for how the bag pays for itself.
Dual-powered: As well as being powered by an AC power supply, the bag also features a car lighter adaptor, allowing the stones to be pre-heated in transit.
Storage: The I is around half the size of a small water heater! This allows for easier and more convenient storage in spas, colleges, therapy rooms, beauty salons and even at home.
Mobility: The size of the bag also allows for easier transport and deployment than the current available heating equipment. Maintenance: Unlike existing water stone heaters, the Bag does not require regular cleaning due to limescale build-up.
'Greener': Compared to existing water stone heaters, the Bag uses less power to heat, no water and is manufactured using a fraction of the metal used in water stone heaters.
About Hot Stone Massage
The application of warmed Basalt stones combined with manual massage to provide the client with a deeply relaxing, therapeutic experience. This treatment which also benefits the therapist not only financially but also physically.
As a contemporary therapy, hot stone massage was introduced to the world of spa treatments by Mary Nelson in 1993. The therapeutic use of stones and rocks has, however, been employed for thousands of years in various forms. The technique utilises smooth warm (basalt*) stones in the therapist's hands to massage the client's body; the heat gently penetrating the skin and muscles, helping the recipient to relax quickly and effectively.
Aromatherapy, Reflexology and MLD, along with many other techniques, can be combined with hot stone massage. Many students employing many techniques are able to use thermal stones to avoid, or minimise, the effects of RSI or to continue practicing after sustaining an injury to hands or wrists.
Basalt stones are the stones of choice for hot stone masages because basalt retains heat better than any other type of stone and they have a smooth texture.
