Hot Stone Massage

        Hot Stone Massage is a form of body work that involves the application of heated stones (thermotherapy) to the body within the context of a therapeutic massage. Round, smooth stones are heated to a luxurious warmth, oiled and used in the palm of the hands to massage the body, as well as place them on different areas of the body to heat those areas while working on other areas. The heat penetrates deeply, promoting profound relaxation, increased detoxification, and relief of long-standing muscular tension, stress, and fatigue.

            The use of applied heat to alter the temperature of the body for healing is a technique of long-standing benefit. The roots of this healing therapy can be sourced back to many ancient cultures including the Native Americans.  Though the history of using heated stones as an adjunct to body work reaches back centuries, this type of therapy has recently become popular again.
