Hot stone massage is performed using smooth heated basalt stones, ethically sourced from volcanos around the world, and are used either as an extension of therapists hands, or by placing them on the body while they massage other parts of the body. The heat can be both deeply relaxing and help warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply, more quickly.
The stones are of various shapes and sizes and the pressure applied can be varied depending on the preference of the client. The heat of the stones sinks deeper into the tissues helping tight muscles soften more quickly than in a traditional therapeutic massage, allowing the therapist to release fascial restrictions, knots and muscular tension, which often causes pain and discomfort.
This ancient technique is a totally rejuvenating experience for the body and mind. The hot stones balance your energies and leave you feeling grounded and deeply relaxed.
