Hot stone massage is a massage therapy in which water treated stones are placed at specific sites on a clients body. This promotes relaxation and helps open up the meridians. Muscles are pretreated with the heated stones to allow the therapist to perform deep tissue manipulations.
The stones used are smooth heated basalt stones, a black volcanic rock which absorbs heat. The heat is both extremely relaxing and helps tight muscles release. Massage oils are also used within the massage treatment.
A full hot stone massage treatment is 2 hours long which also includes a holistic facial using only organic products.
If you have inflammation or muscle injury, cold stones can also be used with hot stones.
