Hot Stone Massage incorporates heated, smooth Basalt stones into a Swedish or Deep Tissue style massage. A licensed massage therapist uses the stones to warm and loosen tight muscles.
What is Hot Stone Massage?
During your massage, the basalt stones are placed on various parts of your body to help warm the tissues. The warm stones are also used to massage parts of the body for a deeper, warming effect.
Your licensed massage therapist warms the stones using water and a professional stone heater that is temperature controlled. The stones can be placed along your spine, legs, feet, hands, chest, and arms. During your massage, you may have warm stones on part of your body while the therapist is using other stones to massage.
You will be fully and modestly draped with a sheet/blanket during your massage. The therapist will only uncover the part of the body being worked on, re-draping and tucking for client comfort. A client can request that certain parts of their body not be massaged.
Benefits of Hot Stone Massage
Hot Stone massage is a wonderful way to relax while the stones warm and loosen tight tissues and muscles. By relaxing muscles with direct heat, the stones allow the massage to affect deeper muscle layers without applying deep pressure. When the stones are placed on your body to warm the tissues, at least one layer of covering is in-between the skin and the stones.
This treatment is good for those suffering from chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia or arthritis as well as those needing a truly warming massage for muscle tension and pain, stress, or insomnia.
