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.

Chiropractic focuses on ensuring that your body's nervous system works at its best as the nervous system controls everything in the body. The nervous system (consisting of the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves and special sensory organs) controls and co-ordinates all of your body's organs and structures and relates you to your environment. Chiropractic removes any interference to the nervous system allowing your body to heal itself, giving the best possible conditions for life and health.
What truly differentiates doctors of chiropractic from any other healthcare professionals is the fact that chiropractors are the only professionals who are trained to diagnose and treat what are called spinal subluxations. The word “subluxation” comes from the Latin words meaning “somewhat or slight" (sub) and “to dislocate” (luxate). So the term ‘vertebral subluxation’ literally means a slight dislocation or misalignment of the bones in the spine. Vertebral Subluxations disturb the nervous system's ability to regulate every cell in your body and has therefore been proven to have a negative effect on one's health.
Whether it's sports, deep tissue, Swedish or even a holistic massage, we will be able to use all or a combination of these to provide you with an individual and unique massage. We use only natural products and essential oils and thus continuing to provide the highest standard of care at Church Road Chiropractic.
