Hot Rock Massage
Hot stone massage is a type of massage that involves the use of smooth, heated stones. The therapist uses the stones in the palms of his or her hands to massage the body.
The stones warm and relax tense muscles so the therapist can penetrate the muscle and work deeper, more quickly.
The warmth of the stones is comforting and deeply relaxing. It's suited for people who prefer a lighter massage but require the release of muscle tension. The heat is a muscle relaxant, allowing the therapist to work the muscles using lighter pressure.
Some people find Hot stone massage helpful for the following conditions (just to name a few):
