Hot Stone Massage uses smooth basalt or volcanic stones that are preheated to 120 degrees. This type of massage uses Basalt river rocks because they are smooth from the river’s current and retain heat.
The therapist places stones on your back, palms or feet. The flow of heat increases energy and circulation throughout the body. Hot Stone Massage can be combined with Swedish Circulatory Massage or Deep Tissue Massage.
Stone Massage is comforting and deeply relaxing. The warm stones soothe and relaxes muscles. It provides relief of general pain and stress. In addition, stone massage may help with Fibromyalgia, MS and Arthritis.
