Types of Massage > Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone healing dates back 2,000 years. Warm stones relax muscles and allow massage therapists to provide even deeper more soothing massage experience. The heat from the heated basalt stones helps to loosen muscles more quickly so the therapist can provide a more relaxing massage more quickly.
Additionally, the heat increases soothing effects and blood flow. Stones may also be used to aide in deep pressure to further relieve areas of tension. Hot stone massage may be helpful for those looking for relief from chronic pain, those suffering from anxiety, or even those wishing to increase flexibility.
