Hot Stone massage is mostly a relaxation massage, using Swedish massage techniques, enhanced by the muscle-warming benefits of heat provided by the hot stones.
This is a specialty massage where the therapist uses smooth, heated stones as an extension of their own hands, or by placing them on the body. The heat can be both deeply relaxing and help warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply, more quickly.

What Happens During a Hot Stone Massage?
First, the therapist warms up the body with traditional Swedish massage, then massages you while holding a heated stone. As the stone cools, the therapist replaces it with another. The therapist uses many stones of various shapes and sizes—big ones on the big muscles, smaller ones on smaller muscles.
The therapist might also leave heated stones in specific points along your spine, in the palms of your hand, on your belly, or even between your toes to improve the flow of energy in your body. Many therapists believe that the stones themselves have an energetic charge and that needs to be maintained by placing them in a spiral pattern, placing them in a full moon periodically.
Be sure to speak up if the stones are too warm or the pressure too intense. And you can always ask them to stop using the stones if you don’t like how it feels.
What are the Benefits of Hot Stone Massage?
Relaxation, relaxation, relaxation. And relaxation brings with it a whole host of well-being benefits that shouldn’t be overlooked. Think of it as a meditation for body and mind. The warm massage increases blood flow, bringing healing oxygen to those places that hurt, at the same time enhancing breathing to help bring valuable oxygen into the body and to help expel toxins.
