Hot Stone Massage consists of traditional massage techniques with the incorporation of therapeutic smooth, flat, and heated rocks placed at key points on the body.  Once the stones have heated sufficiently, some are placed onto specific points on the body, such as the back, hands, feet while others are held by the massage therapist and used to work the muscles. The temperature aids in the healing process and the deeper relaxation of the body and mind. It has been said that each stroke with a massage stone is 10 times more effective than a traditional stroke.
