Hot Stones Melt Tension

If you haven't experienced a Hotstone Massage this modality is one you must experience to truly appreciate.

The stones used for a hot stone massage are usually basalt stones.  They are heated to 130 degrees and because of the density of the stones they retain their heat well. The stones are placed strategically along the spine and/or between the toes. The therapist gently uses the stone as a tool to realign muscles and soften connective tissue. The firmness of the stone and the combination of the heat enhances the therapeutic benefits of the massage.
