Hot Stone Massage
Hot Stone Massage is a Swedish-style massage that involves the application of water-heated basalt stones of varying sizes to key points on the body, giving similar benefits to a deeper tissue massage while creating sensations of comfort and warmth. The direct heat relaxes muscles, allowing manipulation to a greater intensity than with regular massage.
The massage treatment utilizes heated river stones as an extension of the massage therapist’s hands. It melts away areas of tension and releases energy blocks. The heat melts the tension out of your muscles without requiring a great amount of force. It's like having a deep tissue massage without some of the intense sensations of pressure associated with it. The overarching sensations are warmth, pleasure and the relief and comfort that the heat brings.
