What is a Hot Stone Massage?
A hot stone massage is a type of massage therapy that is used to help you relax and ease tense muscles and damaged soft tissues throughout your body. During a hot stone massage session, smooth, flat, heated stones are placed on specific parts of your body. The stones are usually made of basalt, a type of volcanic rock that retains heat.
