Hot Stone Massage in Montreal

As the name suggests, this therapy involves hot stones that are placed on the body. The reason for using such stones is similar to the reason people with sore muscles often take hot baths. The heat in the stones transfer to the muscles to increase blood flow and loosen knots and other strains. A more relaxed body allows the therapist to go deeper into the muscle tissue.

The stones are made of smoothed lava rocks which are very good at retaining heat and transferring it to skin and muscle.

This form of therapy is especially popular during the winters in Montreal as a feeling of warmth often lasts for quite a while after the stones are removed and the session is completed.

What are the Benefits of a Hot Stone Massage?

  • Reduces pain
  • Relaxes muscles and muscle spasms
  • Decreases stress
  • Gives natural relief to many chronic conditions such as arthritis, carpal tunnel, and fibromyalgia
  • Helps in increasing flexibility and mobility
  • Significantly diminishes and, often completely relieves, pain from tense and strained muscles

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.
