Getting stoned …
Hot stone massage therapy is a relaxing way therapist can work deeper into the muscle more quickly. Hot stone massage involves the use of smooth, heated stones that the massage therapist strategically places on the body or rubs on the body with the palm of their hand. The penetrating heat and weight of the stones, used during the massage loosen and relax tense muscles, promoting deep relaxation that allows a massage therapist to manipulate the muscle intensely without causing pain or discomfort.
Hot stone massage is a variation of traditional massage techniques and engages the use of smooth stones containing basalt, which retains heat well. The use of hot stones for healing dates back to when Native Americans warmed stones by fire to ease muscle aches and pains. The use of heated stones in massage was reborn with the introduction of LaStone Therapy, created by Mary Nelson, in 1993. Combining hot stone protocols with a full body massage provides a very healing and effective experience.
Hot stone therapy has tremendous ability to relax the body and is deeply detoxifying.
The hot stones expand blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body. The hot stones have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.

Benefits of Hot Stone Modalities
LET'S TALK ABOUT STRESS RELIEF
Who doesn't want to reduce the stress in their life? Stress relief is key to finding the balance of a healthy lifestyle. Even a single massage session has been shown to significantly lower heart rate, cortisol and insulin levels - all of which help reduce daily stress.
LET'S FORCE THE ISSUE...OF RELAXATION
How often and how long are you actually able to disconnect from life? Massage has been shown to help the body enter a relaxing rest-and-recovery mode - an effect that lingers long after the massage is over.
SIT UP AND TAKE NOTICE...OF YOUR POSTURE
Unlike other bad habits, poor posture can help be corrected by relaxation. Massage helps reinforce healthy and natural movements, which can get your posture back on track.
BREATHE IN. BREATHE DEEPLY.
One of the telltale signs of anxiety and stress is constricted breathing. Massage can play an important role in relieving respiratory issues and training the body how to relax.
