Hot Stone Massage
A hot stone massage is a type of massage therapy that involves the use of smooth, heated stones.
A certified massage therapist places the hot stones on specific points on your body and may also hold the stones while giving the massage.
The localized heat and weight of the stones warm and relax your muscles, allowing the massage therapist to apply deeper pressure to those areas without causing discomfort.
People often describe hot stone massage as comforting and deeply relaxing.
Hot stone massage is said to have health benefits for people with:
- Muscular pain
- Poor circulation
- Rheumatic and arthritic conditions
- Back pain
*Please note – While the benefits of hot stone massage are great in the right circumstances, hot stone massage therapy is not appropriate for everyone. If you have certain illnesses or skin disorders please contact me to discuss whether hot stone massage is right for you.
