What is a hot stones massage?
Hot stone massage uses smooth, heated stones. They are basalt, a black volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat well.
It is a deeply soothing, relaxing form of massage. The warm stones glide over your body in smooth therapeutic strokes, hot stones are then placed on specific points along your spine, in the palms of your hands, and even between your toes to improve the flow of energy in your body.
The stones are of various shapes and sizes and the pressure applied can be varied depending on the preference of the client. The heat of the stones penetrates deeper into the tissues than the pressure on the skin helping tight muscles release more quickly than in traditional therapeutic massage.
This is a totally rejuvenating experience for the body and mind. The stones balance your energies and leave you feeling grounded and deeply relaxed.
