What is a Hot Stone?

Massage stones can be added to enhance your massage experience. These large, flat stones are warmed up, and then placed on the area of the body that needs pain relief. One or multiple stones may be used in a single visit. As with all our tools, these stones are regularly sanitized between client appointments.

 

How does it work?

During a hot stone massage, smooth, flat, heated stones are placed on specific parts of your body. The stones are usually made of basalt, a type of volcanic rock that retains heat.

  • The stones may be placed:
    • Along your spine
    • On your stomach
    • On your chest
    • On your face
    • On your palms
    • On your feet and toes
  • Massage therapists may hold heated stones as they massage your body using Swedish massage techniques such as:
    • Long Strokes
    • Circular Movements
    • Vibration
    • Tapping
    • Kneading
