Hot Stone Massage
If you are new to the world of massage, you may be asking yourself what is a hot stone massage?
Hot Stone Therapy combines the use of heated basalt stones with therapeutic massage. In this relaxing and healing massage, stones of various weights and sizes are placed on specific areas of the body which tend to hold stress or tension. For example, the back muscles, neck, abdomen and parts of the face. The heated stones are also oiled and the massage therapist will use then in flowing strokes to relax the entire body.
The heat from the stones begins to relax the entire body almost immediately. A Hot Stone Massage eases muscle tension and the effects that stress has on the body.
