Hot Stone Massage Therapy

 

What is Hot Stone Massage?

 

Hot Stone Massage is an ancient healing art originating over 2000 years ago in Ancient

India and China. This unique form of massage incorporates smooth, heated stones into

a massage session. Basalt stones are used, as the minerals in basalt absorb and retain

heat the longest of any type of stone.

Hot Stone Massage is a deeply soothing, relaxing form of massage. The heat helps

tight muscles release. This ancient practice has recently been revived, and is growing in

popularity in healing spas across the world today.

 

How Stones Work

 

There are two ways to use heated stones in a massage. The first way is to use them as

stationary placement stones to warm the tissues.

This brings the client's attention to the warmed body part, and has a calming effect on

their mind. Tension is melted away with the liquid heat sensation from the warmed

stones.

The second way to use hot stones in massage is to actually massage the clients with

them.

 

The heat of the stones warms and relaxes the muscles very quickly and easily. This

allows practitioners to access deeper tissues in a shorter amount of time and with less

effort than conventional massage.

Hot stones are unique in that they add a grounding and balancing element to your

massage. Heated stones energize the practitioner, and relax the client at the same time.
