Hot stone massage uses heated smooth, flat stones which are placed on key points on the body and or used to massage the body. The rocks are usually made of basalt, a type of rock rich in iron, that retains heat. The stones are heated in a temperature controlled water bath and the temperature of the stones checked before being placed on the body.
The hot stones are then placed on to the body and left for a short period of time to allow the muscles to warm.and relax, improving the circulation and calming the nervous system. The therapist may then use oils and the stones to massage certain areas of the body.
The hot stone massage will have a greatly relaxing effect on the body and is helpful in allowing the therapist to do a deeper massage where muscles are tight or tense. The hot stones are usually used in conjunction with other massage techniques and create a uniquely relaxing experience for you to enjoy.
