Hot Stone Massage

The hot stone massage is a specialty massage that uses smoothed basalt lava stones that are renowned for absorbing and retaining heat. In this massage, the therapist hands are replaced by the use of the hot stones. The therapist coats the stones in massages oils or gels, allowing for the stones to be applied to the body in a smooth and continuous fashion, incorporating several Swedish massage techniques.

How does Hot Stone Massage Work?
Muscles are pretreated with the heated stones to allow the therapist to more easily perform deep tissue manipulations. During the session the stones are placed at key focal points of the body such as the hands, abdomen, upper, and lower back allowing for deep muscle relaxation. The direct heat of the stones sends the body into a relaxed state allowing for an almost immediate relaxation of the tense muscles.
