The Hot Stone Massage Experience...
Your hot stone massage session begins with a short assessment to help your male therapist customize your experience. You'll then be escorted to the massage therapy room which is designed for maximum relaxation.
After showing you the equipment and where to place your clothes and belongings the therapist will leave the room so that you can undress in privacy.
Once you have removed your clothes and made yourself comfortable on the soft massage table, your therapist re-enters the room. He turns off the lamp so that all that remains are the flickering candles and soft music in the background. He the begins to massage your body with his hands and forearms. In just a few minutes you'll begin to feel what makes our massages so popular.
After the initial focus on your scalp, shoulders and back, your therapist begins to remove the appropriate hot stones from the heating unit. The set of 50+ basalt stones are thoroughly sanitized prior to each use and heated for 20 to 30 minutes prior to your arrival.
Each therapeutic stone is specially shaped to be placed on a precise area of your body. Several of the heated flat stones are strategically positioned for you to lay your back on while laying face up on the table.
You are appropriately draped throughout the session, while your skilled massage therapist uses his hands and stones to massage your body.
You'll feel as if your whole body is melting as tight muscles and stress give way to peace of mind and total relaxation.
As the stones cool, they are left on the body, while massage is applied to other parts of the body. The light compression created via the weight of the stones is highly therapeutic as well.
In addition, the stones are used as gliding tools and pressure point tools to to treat trigger points and unblock key areas on the body prone to stress and tightness.
The added value of using heated stone is that it allows us to get deeper into the muscles.
Body parts the can be treated with hot stones include the following:
- Area between the toes
- Thighs and back of calf
- Arm (elbow joint, forearm)
- Sternum, stomach
- Lumbar area
The placement of the hot stones correspond to areas on the body with concentrated neurovascular (relating to both nerves and blood vessels) activity. These areas include joints, nerve plexuses, acupuncture points, meridians and the primary and secondary chakra locations.
Types of Hot Stones Used for Massage
We use Basalt stones, which are harvested from volcano beds. Because of the ionic composition, Basalt stones retain heat extremely well.
