Hot Stone Therapy

Hot stone therapy involves the application of heated stones to the body within a therapeutic massage.

Round, smooth stones of various sizes are heated to provide soothing warmth to the body. The heat from the stones helps to relax your muscles and melt away tension, allowing the massage therapist to access the deeper tissues more effectively. Overly tense muscles can hinder a massage treatment. Contrary to popular belief, a hot stone massage does not consist of the massage therapist simply placing hot stones on the body, though a therapist can place them at various energy points, including the hands, feet, and even toes to help warm and prepare the body for massage. Several safety procedures are in place for hot stone therapy, including warming stones properly and assuring that the massage therapist holds the stones before placing them on your body. This ensures that the temperature will not be too hot.


Always communicate with your therapist regarding your comfort level and tolerance to the temperature being used. This type of treatment is not recommended for clients who have a history of blood clots, rheumatoid arthritis, neuropathy, open wounds, infectious skin diseases, currently pregnant, or immediately following surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation. Along with these conditions and others, a client should consult with a physician prior to having a hot stone massage. The combined effect of massage with hot stones prompts a state of relaxation, setting the stage for enhanced healing.
