Hot Stone Massage

A must for all massage therapists who want to offer clients a wonderfully relaxing, warming deep massage

The ancient healing of a hot stone massage has been used for thousands of years across the globe by healers, Tibetan monks and native American indians to name a few. It involves the application of heated basalt stones of varying sizes to key points on the body, giving a deep massage and creating sensations of comfort and warmth. The direct heat relaxes the muscles, allowing manipulation of a greater intensity than with a regular massage while preventing tiring and injury to you. Some say one stroke of a stone is equivalent to eight of the hand, and many clients that try it never go back to traditional massage.
