Different types of massages

Hot stone massage
Here, flat and smooth stones (found in the river bed) are put in water and heated using an electric device until they reach a certain temperature range. After which, the therapist places them on certain key points of the body to warm and loosen tight muscles, and balance the body's energy centres. Here, the masseuse will also apply gentle pressure on the warm stones -- touching your body -- to stimulate certain points and relieve muscle tension.

This type of massage is known to be very comforting and relaxing. It is also used to relieve certain physical ailments such as back pain, pain due to arthritis, depression and even insomnia.
