Hot Stone Massage

By Angela Hutchinson or Jill Duncan

Hot stone massage is a specialty massage where the therapist uses smooth, heated stones to do a deep relaxation massage by placing them onto specific points on the body (such as the back, hands, etc.) and others are held by the massage therapist and used to work the muscles. The heat can be both deeply relaxing and help warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply, more quickly.
