What is Hot Stone
Massage Therapy?

Hot stone massage therapy is a type of massage that involves the use of heated stones placed on specific parts of the body to provide relaxation, relieve pain, and promote overall wellness. The stones used in this therapy are typically smooth, flat, and made of basalt, a type of volcanic rock that retains heat well.

During a hot stone massage session, the therapist will first apply oil or lotion to your skin and then place the heated stones on specific points of your body, such as your back, legs, or hands. The stones may also be used to massage your muscles using long strokes, circular movements, or tapping motions.

The heat from the stones can help to relax your muscles, improve circulation, and reduce stress and tension in your body. This therapy can also help to relieve pain, especially in those who suffer from conditions like fibromyalgia, arthritis, or chronic back pain.

Overall, hot stone massage therapy can be a beneficial form of therapy for those seeking relaxation and pain relief. However, as with any therapy or treatment, it's important to speak with your healthcare provider to determine if it's appropriate for you.
