What is Hot Stone Massage?
Hot stone massage combines the benefits of heat therapy with massage strokes to create a deeply relaxing and therapeutic treatment. The smooth water-heated basalt stones are used to massage combined with holistic/deep tissue massage.
The Benefits of Hot Stones Massage
- Muscle Relaxation – The warmth of the stones penetrate more deeply into the muscles to loosen areas of tightness and tension.
- Pain Relief – The added benefit of heat therapy to the massage can provide more pain relief than a traditional massage.
- Improved Circulation – The warmth of the stones expand blood vessels, which improves circulation and removal of toxins throughout the body.
- Mental Wellbeing – The warmth of the stones have a sedative effect that can reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.
