What is a Hot Stone Massage?

Hot Stone Massage is a specialty massage which involves the use of water heated basalt lava stones that absorbs and retains heat well. The stones come in various shapes and size, from tiny little stones that are placed between your toes to big stones the therapist uses to massage your back.   The stones are used by either placing them at certain key points on the body, or the gentle massage of the body by one or two stones held in the hands of the therapist.  This technique creates a sensation of comfort and warmth while the heat of the stones relaxes muscles allowing the therapist to work with more intensity than would be comfortable without the stones.  Hot Stone Massage has been reported to be beneficial when incorporated into a plan for treating such conditions as arthritis, fibromyalgia, MS, chronic back pain, stress and anxiety, insomnia and depression.

Cold stones are also utilized in some techniques.  If you have inflammation or a muscle injury, cold stones are sometimes used.
