Hot Stones Massage

Because only certain masseuses do this type of massage, please give us a call and ask about their availability!

The distinctive point of the hot stones massage is the use of heated stones. Basalt stones are usually used because they are smooth (from the river stream) and keep the heat well.

In preparation for the treatment, the masseuse heats the stones in a professional stone heater until it is in a precise temperature range, usually between 50 and 54 degrees Celsius (Stones that are too hot can cause burns).

The masseuses will place stones in points designed to vigorously balance the mind and body. People often describe hot stone massage as comforting and deeply relaxing.

Heat is soothing to people who tend to feel cold. The heat of the stones relaxes the muscles, allowing the masseuse to work longer while using the lighter pressure.
