Hot Stone Massage

_wsb_193x145_hot+stone+2Hot stone massage combines the benefits of hydrotherapy and thermotherapy with massage strokes, using stones to create a deep, relaxing and healing treatment.

Using the heat of the stones to warm the skin allows the skin to absorb moisturizing and therapeutic oils, while at the same time preparing the musculature of the body so the therapist can work into the deeper layers of muscle and fascia.

It is generally accepted that one stroke of a heated basalt stone is equivalent to 5-10 strokes of the therapists hand!
