What is hot stone massage?

 

Sometimes people aren’t sure if they should try a hot stone massage, and they wonder if the stones are simply placed on their body?  Will I end up receiving less hands on therapy?

At Body Aware, our hot stone treatments are fully integrated with your massage treatment. Heated basalt stones are used as massage tools, to warm muscles and melt away tension to soothe sore muscles. Flowing back and forth between being massaged with the stones and being massaged with hands, allows for deep healing and relaxation. Our Signature Body Aware treatment includes hot stones or you can add-on  hot stones to a therapeutic massage, a couples massage, or a medical massage.

  • Deep tissue integration without pain
  • Calms anxiety
  • Eases muscle tightness
