Also called Hot Rock Therapy, it is a type of massage that uses hot stones on various parts of the body such as the back, legs, shoulders, neck, palms of the hands and soles of the feet.
Applications include the placing of hot stones over key points in the body to help soften stiff areas as well as using the Stones to create massage strokes in order to induce a deep, relaxing and healing treatment.
The heat of the stones warms the skin, aids the absorption of therapeutic oils, while at the same time preparing the musculature of the body for deep tissue work if necessary.
