Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage is a specialty massage that uses smooth, heated stones. They are often basalt, a black volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat well. The heat is both deeply relaxing and helps tight muscles release.
The heat of the stones penetrates deep into the muscle tissue releasing toxins and increasing lymphatic drainage. The heat is very soothing for aching joints and muscles. The depth of the massage stimulates a higher rate of tissue repair.
During the massage, the therapist warms up the body with traditional Swedish massage, then massages you while holding a heated stone. As the stone cools, the therapist replaces it with another.
The therapist might also leave heated stones in specific points along your spine, in the palms of your hand, on your belly, or even between your toes to improve the flow of energy in your body.
The strokes given to the body with hot stones are generally deeper than the average traditional massage movements due to the stones density; with an estimated efficiency ten times that of traditional massage.
* If you have inflammation or muscle injury, cold stones are sometimes used.
