The Benefits of Hot Stones
Warm heated basalt stones are the perfect tools to release stubborn knots, as well as for addressing stress and tension held deeply within the body.
What are hot stones?
The basalt stones used in our practice, were hand picked out of a river bed in Maine, and have a unique healing energy. The stones are heated up prior to the session in hot water. They are then used with oil and lotion to glide gently over the body and provide the ultimate relaxation to tight and aching muscles.
Who needs it?
Hot stones are beneficial for helping induce a deep state of relaxation and peace. The stones carry a healing "Earth" energy, and the warmth of the stones, penetrates tight, tired achy muscles, relieving stress and tension.
What does it do?
This massage is perfect for releasing stubborn knots, as well as for addressing stress and tension held deeply within the body. This massage can be custom tailored towards relaxation or therapeutic therapy depending on your needs, and the stones can be used as tools to enhance relaxation, or to provide deeper leverage into the muscles.
Is it sore?
Hot stone massage is a completely relaxing therapy. The stones although very warm, do not burn the skin, as they are in a constant state of motion, and cooled down before being used on the body.
