What is a Hot Stone Massage?
A hot stone massage is a treatment where heated smooth stones are placed along your body combined with different deep massage techniques and sometimes essential oils.
The technique uses smooth, flat, heated basalt stones which are typically positioned along your spine, in the palms of your hands, along your legs, and even between your toes.
The therapy stones have been chosen because they are very effective at heating up and retaining their warmth for the duration of the massage. The therapist uses the firmness and the heat of the stones to enhance the massage’s therapeutic benefits.

What are the benefits of a Hot Stone Massage?
Hot stone massages have been shown to bring tangible positive effects for those with chronic pain conditions like arthritis, fibromyalgia, and age-related conditions. [Source] One of the many benefits of a hot stone massage is that it is an effective treatment for insomnia. The massage can help you gain a deeper, more restful, and more restorative sleep.
The Hot Stone method has been used since ancient times to reduce stress and promote a sense of calm. Hot stone enthusiasts claim to experience a feeling of relaxation, enlightenment, and increased inner peace after a session.
Plus, massages that incorporate hot stones are shown to improve flexibility, mobility, and posture by releasing muscle tension in the joints and spine.
Is a Hot Stone Massage painful?
The therapy stones, traditionally basalt river rocks, are smooth, round, and oval; they are safe for prolonged human contact.
Before your massage, your therapist uses a special heater to make sure a safe and consistent temperature is maintained. A proper specialist wouldn’t use a microwave as this would give an uneven temperature.
With this in mind, don’t hesitate to tell your therapist if the stones are too warm for you. You will relax faster and start enjoying the massage if you’re comfortable.
What should I expect from a Hot Stone Massage?
The massage will usually begin with warm bodywork followed by soothing exfoliation. Then the massage therapist will carefully remove the stones from the warmer and place them strategically along common pressure points.
The warmth and weight of the stones will help you relax, plus essential massage oils can be incorporated for use on the stones and skin to provide slip and glide.
You may start to feel dreamy as you enter into a deeply relaxed, blissed out, and meditative state.
