What should I expect from a hot stone massage?
The stones are heated in warm water, dried and placed on specific points of the body. These points are where multiple muscles intersect and areas where tension is most frequent.The stones will be warm but not uncomfortably hot on the skin (warm stone massage just doesn’t sound as good).
The therapist will use these stones to massage, allowing the muscles to be deeply soaked in the warmth. Smooth strokes of the polished stones glide along and extract the soreness and tension stored in the skin, tendons, and deeper tissues.
