Hot Stone Massage
Hot Stone Massage is done by heating smooth hand sized stones to a precise temperature that does not burn but is very warm. Oil is applied to the stones and they are used with Swedish Massage techniques going over and releasing tense muscles. Regular hand-applied massage usually follows to give you a wonderfully relaxing treatment.
Immensely popular in the winter time, hot stones feel wonderful on sore spots. Heat loosens the tissue and increases blood flow, bringing more nutrients to the area increasing the massage effectiveness. It’s not uncommon for clients to fall asleep during this massage.
Hot stones can also be used in deep tissue massage.
