Here’s what our massage therapists have to say about hot stone massage:

Hot stone massage is a type of deep tissue massage that uses smooth water-heated stones to promote muscle relaxation and relieve tension from the body. The heat from the stones has a soothing, sedative effect that helps to relax the muscles and allows the therapist access to deeper tissues. Other benefits from hot stone massage include increased circulation, pain relief from chronic conditions and reduced stress.

Hot stone massage is a specialty treatment that is suitable for clients who need to relax and detoxify, who have deep muscle pain and/or cold hands and feet. By using smooth, heated black volcanic rock as an extension of my own hands, or by placing them on the body, the heat from the stone helps your muscles relax, allowing me to manipulate your tight muscles more deeply and effectively, resulting in enhanced therapeutic effects. You will feel more relaxed and less sore compared with a normal deep tissue massage. NOTE: This treatment is not recommended for pregnancy, diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease.
