Hot Stone Massage

Hot Stone Massage is a deeply relaxing treatment that releases tense muscles, accelerates the healing process and creates a deep state of mental relaxation.

Basalt (volcanic) rocks are heated in water and then placed on specific areas of the body to warm and massage your body. The heat from the rocks penetrates the muscles, allowing them to relax 4-5 times quicker than during a standard massage so that I can work deeply and effectively with any tight and tense muscles.

Occasionally, cold stones are introduced to the treatment to encourage even greater movement and release. The warm stones expand the blood vessels encouraging blood flow and calm the nervous system. The introduction of cold stones causes the blood vessels to contract and increases lymphatic flow, washing waste materials out of the body to support the healing process.

Hot Stone therapy can help in the treatment of muscular aches, pains, and strains, rheumatic and arthritic conditions, Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia, back pain, and insomnia. It also helps to improve circulation and can help reduce stress, anxiety, tension and depression.
