Hot Stones Massage

A hot stones massage is one type of massage therapy that helps you ease tense muscles and enables you to relax. This type of massage uses several smooth, flat, and heated stones that are placed in different parts of your body. These stones are usually made from basalt, a volcanic rock that easily retains heat, and are heated to at least 130 degrees Fahrenheit.

When you get a hot stones massage, expect that the stones will be placed along your spine, on your face, palms, chest, or stomach. Our massage therapists might also place them on your toes and feet.

As the heated stones are placed in different areas of your body, our massage therapists will use various massage techniques during the session. These techniques can include circular movements, long strokes, kneading, and tapping.

Depending on the area you want to target and the gravity of the body pain you’re experiencing, our massage therapists might also use cold stones after placing hot stones in your body. Cold stones can effectively soothe your skin and calm any engorged blood vessels.

According to a study, a hot stones massage that focuses on the back is a great way to relieve anxiety and stress. This kind of massage may also help in promoting better and longer sleep and relieve symptoms of autoimmune diseases.
