“Hot Rock” capitalizes on these traditional practices with a current approach. Basalt and marble stones are the medium and the hot and cold temperatures are the massage. By producing alternatively sedative and re-energizing responses to the body, this therapy will assist the body in self-healing. Hot Stone Massage goes beyond the physical experience of a typical massage, and enters deeper dimensions of relaxation, health and well-being, creating a positive approach to “Body-Mind-Spirit” philosophy.
Hot Stone massage, also known as Hot Rock massage, is an ancient idea for our modern age.
This type of therapy utilizes river-bed smooth basalt rocks that are heated and/or cooled then applied to the body. Each stone has a specific role in the massage session. Some are used more for trigger point therapy and others focus on balancing your energy.
Hot Stone massage results in a complete treatment for the body, mind and spirit.
What to expect during a session?
The room is darkened and a hint of sage and Ancient Indian motif clouds the room and begins to transport you back to a time of healing. Clothing is completely removed and a large bath towel and sheet provides the draping for this session. The body is covered except for the area that is being massaged. The stones are heated and used warm to massage the client. As they cool they are placed around them. Some of the stones are placed on the abdomen to open the charkas. The warmth and weight of the stones, the gentle gliding of the massage and the energy from the stones have a deep relaxing, very therapeutic effect on the client. It is like no other massage work.
