What is a Hot Stone Massage?
Deeply relaxing, stress busting and refreshing, a hot stone massage is an ancient practice said to balance your body’s energy flow and recharge your mind and soul. Using a combination of natural stones and gentle oils, the treatment is designed to provide a deep tissue massage that eases muscle tension, improves circulation and promotes a strong sense of calm and well-being.
During a hot stone back massage, the therapist applies light oil to your skin before placing smooth, flat and heated stones on specific locations along your spine. The stones are usually made from basalt – a type of dark, fine-grained volcanic rock – and are carefully heated to a comfortable and pleasant temperature. Once you are fully relaxed, your massage therapist will glide the stones across your back, applying pressure to key spots on your body to help relieve tension and soothe your muscles.
If you’re searching for a treatment that will literally melt away the stresses of everyday life, a hot stone massage is the one for you!
