Hot Stones Radiate Heat & Aid in Relaxation

This Native American influenced massage method uses heated basalt stones with traditional massage techniques to evoke a deep penetrating heat to release muscle tension and balance the spirit.

The hot stones are typically made of basalt, a type of rock that is rich in iron, so they retain heat. River rocks are normally used because the river’s current smooths the surfaces of the rocks.

The stones are immersed in water and heated in an electric heating device until they are within a recommended temperature range. Your massage therapist will follow their internal healing guidance to place the warmed stones on energy points of your body to relax your muscles and relieve tension.

One of the added benefits of hot stones massage is the comforting balance you will experience in your body and mind following your session.

 

Hot stone massage is recommended for the following conditions:

  • Back pain and aches
  • Poor circulation
  • Osteoarthritis and arthritis pain
  • Stress, anxiety and tension
  • Insomnia
  • Sooths symptoms of depression
