Hot stone massage is a speciality massage that uses smooth stones heated in a water bath to 120 - 150 degrees. The stones used are basalt, a black volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat well. The heat is both deeply relaxing and helps tight muscles release.
During the massage, the therapist warms up the body with traditional Swedish massage, then massages you while holding a heated stone. As the stone cools, the therapist replaces it with another.
The therapist might also leave heated stones in specific points along your spine, in the palms of your hand, on your belly, or even between your toes to improve the flow of energy in your body.
If you have inflammation or muscle injury, cold stones are sometimes used.
Cold stone massage provides stress relief and helps the body to relax. It also helps the mind let go of anxiety and trauma.
A cold stone massage is helpful for sporting injuries, swelling and inflammation. It will help to calm the body with the cool stones coupled with the soothing impact of human touch. Stone massage is an ancient art that is now in vogue again.
Certain patients should avoid this type of massage, however, including anyone with a heart ailment, skin that is easily inflamed or sensitivity to cold temperatures. These potential massage clients should check with their doctor before undergoing a cold stone massage.
