Hot Stone Massage
Hot Stone Massage uses smoothly polished lava stones heated in water to varying degrees of warmth, then incorporated into a soothing massage treatment that uses the warm stones as an extension of the therapist’s hands. This therapy is extremely effective both in stress reduction and in resolving chronic conditions because it blends traditional hydrotherapy benefits with modern massage therapy to provide long lasting results. Because heat has an amazing ability to release tension and relax muscles, Hot Stone Massage is the ultimate in stress relief.
The heat from the stones helps your muscles relax, allowing the massage therapist to manipulate your deep tissues more effectively. Overly tense muscles can hinder the massage procedure, so if your muscles are extremely tight or stiff, the heated stones may provide the extra relaxation you need for the massage to be beneficial in releasing tension and easing sore muscles.
