Do not splash oils directly on the stones, as the oils will start to burn!

The skin gets rid of dead cells and is saturated with oxygen and beneficial oils.
Muscle spasm and tightness go away, the body relaxes.
The steam doubles in effect, opening the pores to absorb the beneficial oils from the leaves.
Such massage perfectly relaxes, tones the body, invigorates.
