Hot stone Massage

Hot stone massage is a therapeutic technique that involves the use of heated stones to enhance the traditional massage experience. Smooth, flat stones, typically made of basalt, are heated and placed strategically on specific points of the body, such as along the spine, in the palms of the hands, or between the toes. Additionally, the therapist may use the warm stones as an extension of their own hands, incorporating them into the massage strokes.

The heat from the stones helps to relax muscles, allowing the therapist to apply deeper pressure if desired. It also promotes improved blood circulation and a heightened sense of relaxation. The combination of heat and massage is known to alleviate muscle tension, reduce stress, and enhance overall well-being. Hot stone massage is often chosen for its therapeutic benefits as well as the comforting and soothing sensation of the warm stones on the body.
