One of the oldest methods of massage is stone therapy. In beauty salons these procedures cost a lot of money. What prevents you from doing it at home? If the stones are used properly, by heating or cooling them you can achieve the desired result at home.
Earlier, doctors used the basalt stones for this procedure. Eventually with the spread of shungite in the market, people started actively replacing it. Thanks to the beneficial properties of this mineral, you will not only enjoy it, but also have great benefits for your health from such a massage course. The use of tumbled shungite rocks will help you to get rid of stress, headaches, joint and spine diseases, as well as a number of other diseases from which a lot of modern people suffer.
To get these polished shungite stones, the mineral is processed in a tumbling barrel. The stones get a smooth oval shape, and then they are commonly used for:
- infusing water with fullerene which is the main component in the mineral
- stone therapy
There are a lot of interesting facts about shungite. Here are some of them:
- it is around 2 billion years old. Some scientists think that it’s even an older origin of the rock is unknown. There many theories about it’s origin. The most curious is that it has an extraterrestrial origin because 2 billion years ago the Earth didn’t have so many forests and thus coal. That’s why shungit with it’s carbon components couldn’t exist.
- It has a really unusual structure. This the first natural material where fullerene was found. It was discovered first in laboratories and only then in nature
