Hot & Cold Stones
A stone massage is a massage that uses smooth, flat, basalt or
marble rocks placed at key points on the body.
Hot stones are used to warm the muscle and promote a greater feeling of
relaxation. This allows the therapist to carry out deep tissue work if required due to the
heat in the muscles.
Cold stones are more often used on injured areas where existing
inflammation means that it will benefit from the cooling effect of the stones.
