Working Hot Stone Therapy is a way of warming up the muscles before working them with a powerful massage that will melt away tension, ease muscle stiffness, and increase circulation and metabolism. It promotes deeper muscle relaxation through the placement of smooth, water-heated stones at key points. The direct heat of the stones relaxes your muscles and allows the massage therapist access deeper muscle layers. Combining hot stone protocols with a full body massage provides a very healing and effective experience. The hot stones also expand blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body. The hot stones have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation. No additional time to your massage session is added.
