Hot Stone Massage

What is a Hot Stone Massage?

Hot stone massage is a unique type of massage where heated smooth, flat stones are placed on key points on the body. Heated stones are put in specific points along your spine, or in the palms of your hand, or even between your toes. This helps improve the body’s energy flow, creating a feeling of continuous heat throughout the body, which can make you more physically and emotionally receptive to the benefits of the hot stone massage. The massage therapist may also hold the stones and use them to massage certain areas of the body.

The hot stones are usually made of basalt, a type of rock that is rich in iron, so they retain heat. The heat warms and relaxes the muscles, which allows the therapist to access deeper tissues more quickly than with a conventional massage. Hot Stone Massage is an effective natural treatment that provides the mind and body with a number of benefits.
