Hot stone Massage

The type of deep massage therapy involving the use of smooth and heated stones, soothing oils, warm basalt and in a few cases cold marble stones are used for the relaxation of muscles. The licensed massage therapist typically uses the smooth basalt rocks or river rocks which in a water bath have been heated to a uniform temperature. The massage therapist then places the hot stones on particular body points along the back, stomach, face, and hands for creating a soothing pressure or for using them to massage the muscles with steady pressure, and can even hold the stones along the body while they are giving the massage. The muscles are relaxed due to the warmth they are receiving from the localized heat as well as from the stone's weight. For the solace and relief of the body muscles, the massage therapist applies deeper pressure to the areas, with the caution of not to cause any discomfort. The iron-rich basalt stones retain heat and according to the age-old belief, the heated basalt stone massage helps in the improvement of the flow of energy in the body.

Why Choose Hot Stone Massage?

Hot stone protocols and a full body massage combined is a potent healing experience. As the hot stones expand the blood vessels, hence the blood flow is encouraged throughout the body. The sedative effect of the hot stones relieves chronic pain, releases stress and is excellent in promoting deep relaxation and easing muscle stiffness.

Using different techniques, the massage therapist helps to relax the long, skeletal muscles of the body. The other movements which the therapist uses are long strokes, tapping, circular motions and kneading.
