Hot stone massage

Regular massage therapy combined with the use of hot, smooth and flat stones that are placed on specific parts of the body, but that could also be held in therapist’s hands during the massage. Stones used are usually made of basalt, a volcanic rock that can retain heat for longer time.

Before massage, stones are heated in hot water, and are then places on specific body parts such as back, neck, stomach, face, hands and feet. When used on face, use of hot stones could be combined with use of cold stones, where cold stones are placed on face after hot stones in order to calm swollen blood vessels and sooth the skin.
