What is Hot Stone Massage?

Hot Stone Massage is a specialized form of massage therapy that combines the therapeutic touch of Swedish massage techniques with the transformative power of heated stones. The volcanic basalt stones are heated to a comfortable temperature and then placed at strategic points on the body, as well as used as extensions of the therapist’s hands. The heat from the stones penetrates deep into the muscles, offering a unique and profoundly relaxing experience.

Benefits of Hot Stone Massage:

Deep Muscle Relaxation

The heat from the stones works to relax and soften the muscles, allowing for deeper penetration during the massage.

Stress Reduction

The warmth and pressure of the stones induce a deep state of relaxation, reducing stress and promoting emotional well-being.

Pain Relief

The thermal effect of hot stones can alleviate pain, including that of chronic conditions like arthritis or muscle tension.

Improved Circulation

Hot stones help to expand blood vessels, improving blood flow and circulation throughout the body.


Enhanced circulation helps in the effective removal of waste and toxins from the body.

Increased Flexibility

The deep heat and massage techniques can help improve the range of motion and flexibility of joints.

Enhanced Sleep Quality

Many find that the deep state of relaxation facilitated by a Hot Stone Massage leads to a better quality of sleep.

What to Expect with a Hot Stone Massage.

A typical Hot Stone Massage session takes place on a massage table. The therapist heats the stones in water until they reach the desired temperature, generally between 130-145 degrees Fahrenheit. After applying massage oil to facilitate smooth movement, the therapist may place the hot stones on specific areas of the body or use them to massage muscle groups. Sessions generally last between 60 and 90 minutes.

Who Should Consider a Hot Stone Massage?

Hot Stone Massage is an excellent choice for those looking to unwind and escape daily stressors. It’s particularly beneficial for people suffering from muscle tension, chronic pain, or simply wanting to experience deep relaxation. However, it’s not recommended for those with certain medical conditions, including high blood pressure, diabetes, or skin conditions, without prior consultation with a healthcare provider.
