Hot Stones

Incorporating hot stones into any massage is a powerful way to apply heat to a specific area of fascia. As needed, the stones are used as a tool and worked into the massage. In order for the stone to retain heat particular volcanic rocks are used namely basalt, which is the popular option. The heat that they release gets deep into the skin and the muscles, providing relaxation and relief from muscle tension. The warmth of the stones opens the blood pathways promoting circulation which removes wastes and brings in healing nutrients. Stress and anxiety are also reduced specifically as relaxation occurs it triggers the production of feel-good hormones like endorphins and reduces stress hormones like cortisol and norepinephrine. Hot stones just feel absolutely amazing and have such compounding benefits.
