Various hot stone therapies have been used in therapeutic work for thousands of years. There is a good reason for this: “Touch of stone” combined with the warmth soothes muscles, body and soul very efficiently.
Soapstone accumulates about 2,5 times as much energy as “traditional”, porous stones used for hot stone therapy. Therefore you need a lot less stones for good results. The unique structure of soapstone gives you also another advantage: As the porosity of it is very low, only 0,008%, stone does not “collect” dirt, dead skin and so on and can be cleaned very easily.
