Hot Stone Massage

A hot stone massage is a type of massage therapy. It’s used to help you relax and ease tense muscles and help repair damaged tissue throughout your body.
During a hot stone massage, heated stones (usually made of basalt which retains heat well) are placed on specific areas of your body. Hot stones are often heated to 130-145 degrees.

The areas stones may be placed on are:
• along the spine
• on the stomach
• on the chest
• on the face
• on the palms
• on the feet and toes

The massage therapist may also hold hot stones in their hand while they use their traditional Swedish massage techniques. Cold stones are also sometimes used during a Hot Stone Massage, cold stones soothe the skin and calm any engorged blood vessels when applied after using hot stones.

All types of massages today generally fall under the alternative medicine umbrella. Massages are becoming a very popular and effective complimentary therapy for many conditions, especially the Hot Stone Massage
