Hot Stone MassageHot stone massage is a specialty massage that uses smooth, heated stones. They are often basalt, a volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat well.
It is a deeply soothing, relaxing form of massage. The heat helps tight muscles relax.
The therapist uses traditional strokes of Swedish massage while holding the heated stone. As the stone cools, the therapist replaces it with another.
The therapist might also leave heated stones in specific points along your spine, or in the palms of our hand, or even between your toes to improve the flow of energy in your body.
