In Hot Stone Massage Therapy, warmed basalt or other stones are massaged over the body with warm oil. Hot Stone is one of the most relaxing and sedating types of massage therapy. Heated, smooth stones are placed on certain points on the body to warm and loosen tight muscles and balance energy centres in the body. Hot stone massage is good for people who have muscle tension but prefer lighter massage and is a great choice for people with insomnia. The heat from the stones melts away tension and reduces tight muscles to jelly. Hot Stone Massage Therapy is truly the chocolate decadence of the massage menu! It involves extra labour related to the setup and cleanup of the stones.
