Hot stone massage therapy is an effective form of massage using rounded volcanic balsalt stones. The heated stones can be used either by placing them on the clients body or incorporated within the massage. The heat from the stones helps to relax both the muscles and the client. The treatment can be tailored to the clients needs and may be used both for relaxation or for therapeutic reasons.
What to Expect During A Hot Stone Massage Treatment
A short consultation prior to the hot stone treatment ensures that any medical conditions are considered during the massage. The stones are heated to a comfortable temperature in a water bath and are removed from the hot water bath and placed on the body and hands or feets and allowed to warm the muscles prior to massaging that area. During the treatment the massage therapist will also use oil (e.g. grapeseed or sweet almond oil, and aromatherapy oils can also be included).
