Hot stone massage is a type of massage therapy that helps relax and ease tense muscles soft tissues throughout your body.  During a hot stone massage, smooth stones (made of basalt, a volcanic rock that retains heat) are heated with use of oil or essential oils on the skin. The therapeutic effects of heat are used to relax muscles on a deeper level.  As an extension of the therapist’s hands, the use of massage stones induces deep relaxation and provides a unique experience many find to be tremendously calming and centering.  The stones can also be strategically placed on specific part of your body after the stone has cooled enough as not to burn the client. The stones are smooth and flat or round and heated between 130 and 145 degrees.
