Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage is a specialty massage where the therapist uses smooth, heated stones as an extension of their own hands, or by placing them on the body.

Overview

Hot stone massage is a specialty massage where smooth, heated stones are used as an extension of my hands and placed on key points on the body. The direct heat of the stones relaxes muscles, allowing access to deeper muscle layers. Combining hot stone techniques with a full body massage provides a very healing and effective experience. The hot stones have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation. Hot stone massage is a variation on classic massage therapy.

A hot stone massage is tailored to your needs and employs a variety of strokes and techniques using the stones and hands. Hot stone massage is a deep massage that uses soothing oils, warm basalt and sometimes cold marble stones to relax your muscles. Placement of the stones is usually at specific points on the back, relating to energy centers of the body, in the palms of the hand, or between the toes but may vary depending on the client’s condition. The heat of the stones warm and relax the muscles, which allows deeper pressure, if desired.
