During Hot stone massage the therapist uses smooth, heated stones as an extension of their own hands, or by placing them on the body.
The heat can be both deeply relaxing and help warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply, more quickly.
Hot stones warmed by fire were used by Native Americans to treat aching muscles. The stones themselves are usually basalt, a black volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat well and has been smoothed by natural forces in the
river or sea.
The therapist might also leave heated stones in specific points along your spine, in the palms of your hand, on your abdomen, or even between your toes to improve circulation in your body.
Hot Stone massage is not appropriate if you have diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, or are on medication that thins your blood. Its best not to have hot stone massage if you are pregnant or have a sunburn.
