What is Hot Stone?

While all types of massage can help relieve pain caused by tense muscles, stiff joints or injuries, a hot stone massage may provide greater relief due to the intense nature of the massage. Because the hot stones allow the massage therapist to penetrate deeper, you may find that a hot stone massage leaves you feeling physically better than a Swedish or deep-tissue massage that does not incorporate heat. It is important to let your massage therapist know if you feel the heat from the stones is too hot or that the pressure she is using is too harsh.

How does it work?

The stones are immersed in water and heated in an electric heater until they are within a certain temperature range. The placement of the stones is usually at specific points on the back, in the palms of the hand, or between the toes but may vary depending on the client's condition.The massage therapist may also hold the stones and use them to massage certain areas of the body.

The heat of the stones warm and relax the muscles, which allows the therapist to apply deeper pressure, if desired.

Benefits of Hot Stone

Some people find the warmth of the hot stones to be comforting and get this type of massage for relaxation. Hot stone massage is suited to people who tend to feel chilly or who have cold feet.
