What is a Hot Stone Massage?

How Does It Work?

Next, the therapist will place the hot stones on key points on your body. The stones warm and relax the muscles, allowing deeper pressure to be applied during the massage.

If the stones are too hot or the pressure is too intense, you should tell the therapist. Arrive 10 minutes early so that you can relax.

Known as a “classic massage” in many countries, the Swedish massage is the best known and most widely practiced type of massage therapy. There are a variety of techniques used in Swedish massage including circular pressure applied by the hands and palms, firm kneading, light tapping, and more.
The goal is to relax the body by rubbing the muscles in long strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But the benefits of Swedish massage go beyond relaxation.
