Hot Stone Reflexology includes the use of hot stones, in between finger pressure, on specific reflex points on the feet to release tension at a deeper level.
The heat of the stones, on the feet and lower penetrate deeper into the layers of the muscles and assist in opening and activating the energy channels of the reflex points.
