As the name suggests, Hot Stone Massage uses heated stones during the massage treatment. The stones used are smooth and are pre-heated in water beforehand. Once the stones are at working temperature they are placed on specific parts of the body.
The heat from the stones penetrates the muscles, which make them relax, stretching the muscle fibres, and improving circulation. The stones are then used to massage the area, while they are still heated. Hot Stone Massage helps relieve pain and muscle tension, increase blood circulation, and improve muscle flexibility.
