Hot stone massage is the treatment that combines traditional massage techniques integrated with the application of warmed basalt stones to create a deeply relaxing, luxurious experience. The hot stones also expand blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body. During a treatment you will experience remedial techniques to identify tight muscle groups, followed by the use of specifically shaped stones on trigger points and tension areas. The body relaxes naturally with the direct heat from the stones, allowing the therapist to give a deeper massage applied with a gentle touch which results in an extremely effective treatment. Hot stone massage therapy melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness and increases circulation and metabolism. The warmth from the stones stimulates and improves circulation which brings more nutrients and oxygen to the muscles, while assisting the lymphatic system to remove toxins.
