WHAT IS HOT STONE MASSAGE?
Hot Stone Massage is a form of massage therapy and body work that involves placing hot stones on the body. The purpose is to promote pain relief, circulation, and relaxation.
The practice of Hot Stone Massage has been used for hundreds of years, in many Native American, South Pacific and Asian countries. The stones used are basalt volcanic stones and are heated in water to a temperature between 40-60 degrees Celsius.
The pressure exerted from placing the stones on the tissues, along with the heat emitted from the stones, soothes the muscles and helps with pain management.
