Hot stone massage is a modality that involves the application of warm stones to the skin. Massage stones are smooth, heat-retaining, versatile tools. Large round stones can be placed stationary on the body. Small flat stones can be combined with long gliding strokes. And pointed stones can dig into the tight parts of the body, such as under the shoulder blade or between the ribs.
Heat therapy is a common remedy for muscle stiffness, body aches, and emotional stress. When a hot stone is placed on the skin, the blood vessels expand and send nutrient-rich blood to the muscles and bones. A well-nourished body is a relaxed body, and the warmth of a hot stone massage can offer that benefit.
How Are Hot Stones Incorporated?
A hot stone massage, despite its name, doesn’t have to involve stones for the entire massage session. You can request to have stones used the entire time, or you can have them intermittently added throughout your session. Book a hot stone massage today with one of our talented massage therapists!
