Hot Stone Massage

What is Hot Stone Massage?

In hot stone massage, the massage 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.

 

The Origin of Hot Stone Massage

Hot stones warmed by fire were used by Native Americans to treat aching muscles. Modern Hot Stone Massage technique is generally credited to Mary Nelson, of Tucson, Arizona.
