The techniques of a conventional massage are used during a hot stone massage. The therapist, on the other hand, uses hot stones that are placed on certain regions of the body. The stones are smooth and flat, and they are commonly formed of basalt, a type of volcanic rock. These stones were chosen for their ability to retain heat. Before doing a hot stone massage, the stones are immersed in hot water to warm them. This allows the therapist to go deeper into the muscles without exerting additional pressure, allowing the client to relax even more. Aside from deep relaxation, there are other advantages to getting a hot stone massage. What are you waiting for? Book your appointment, today.
