hot stone massage near me

Information:

A hot stone massage is a great and effective type of massage therapy. It’s used to help you relax and ease tense muscles. This massage also heals damaged soft tissues throughout your body.

During a hot stone massage, flat, smooth, heated volcanic rock stones are placed on specific parts of your body. The stones are usually made of basalt, a type of volcanic rock that retains heat very well. Hot massage stones are heated to between 130 and 145 degrees.

The stones may be placed:

  • along your spine

And, on your:

  • stomach
  • chest
  • face
  • palms
  • feet and toes

Massage therapists may hold heated stones as they massage your body using Swedish massage techniques such as:

  • long strokes
  • kneading
  • vibration
  • circular movements
  • tapping

Sometimes, cold stones are also used during a hot stone massage. Cold stones may be used after hot stones to calm any engorged blood vessels and to soothe the skin.
