What is Hot Stone Massage
A hot stone massage is a type of massage therapy that is used to help you relax and ease tense muscles and damaged soft tissues throughout your body.
During a hot stone massage, smooth, flat, heated stones are used during various times of the massage on specific parts of your body. The stones are usually made of basalt, a type of volcanic rock that retains heat.
