What is Hot Stone massage and who is it for?
Hot Stone Massage is a style of massage therapy in which water-treated stones are placed
at specific sites on the client's body to promote relaxation and to help open up the merdians
(energy pathways). Muscles are pretreated with the heated stones to allow the therapist to more
easily perform deep tissue manipulations. Cool stones are sometimes used alternately with
hot stones. Massage oils are usually incorporated into the massage treatment.
