Whether you are looking to soothe sore muscles or simply need some relaxation, a hot stone massage during these approaching winter months will bring much needed relaxation and rejuvenation to your mind, body, and soul.

What Is A Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage is a type of massage therapy that involves the use of smooth, heated stones such as Basalt river rocks. One of our massage therapists will place the hot stones on specific points on your body and may use the stones while giving the massage. From there, we generally use Swedish massage therapy techniques, which include long strokes and kneading and rolling. This allows our licensed massage therapists to apply deeper pressure to certain areas of your body without causing any discomfort.

Hot Stone Massage Benefits

Hot stone massages are comforting and extremely relaxing. The warm stones are great for people who tend to feel chilly. Hot stone massage can benefitĀ a wide variety of conditions such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Back pain
  • Increased circulation
  • Joint pain/stiffness relief
  • Improves flexibility

A hot stone massage can offer all the benefits of a Swedish massage combined with the healing benefits of heat. These elements create the ultimate relaxing experience.
