What is it?

Hot stone massage is a type of massage that involves the use of smooth, heated stones that the massage therapist places on your body. The therapist also uses the stones in the palms of his or her hands to massage the body. The penetrating heat and weight of the stones are said warm and relax tense muscles so the therapist can work deeper, more quickly.

 

Benefits.

Some people find the warmth of the hot stones to be comforting and deeply relaxing. Hot stone massage is suited to people who tend to feel chilly. It's also suited for people who have muscle tension but prefer a lighter massage. The heat relaxes muscles, allowing the therapist work the muscles using lighter pressure. 

Although there's a lack of research on the benefits of hot stone massage, the therapy is often used for the same conditions as a classic massage:
- Anxiety
- Back pain
- Depression
- I
nsomnia
- Osteoarthritis

 

Does it hurt?

The hot stones are never rough. They are smooth and typically several inches long. The stones are warmed in an electrical heater so the temperature can be controlled. If the stones are too hot, be sure to let the massage therapist know immediately.
