Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage. Aaahhh. Sounds so relaxing, doesn’t it? Hot stone massage is a type of massage therapy where your massage therapist will place small, hot and smooth stones on specific points of your body and might also hold the stones while giving the relaxing massage. From the stones comes a localized heat as well as a little weight that will both warm and relax your muscles. This relaxation and warmth will also allow your massage therapist to work deeper, but not apply extra pressure. Some patients have reported that it helps with back pain, insomnia and depression, as well as anxiety.
Out hot stone massages are $115 for 60 minutes and $150 for 90 minutes.
You may be trying this massage for the very first time or maybe already a fan of hot stone massage and just want to try something new, you should talk with your massage therapist (and your personal healthcare provider) about if hot stone massage will work well for you.
Lots of people find the warmth of the stones and rubbing deeply relaxing and quite beneficial for their mind and their body, but you’ll definitely want to make sure that it’s right type of massage for you. Most especially for people with injuries or high blood pressure.
