Q: What is Hot Stone Massage?
A: Really awesome!
Hot Stone Massage is a unique blend of heat, relaxation,and muscle work tailored to your needs. Hot,oiled stones are glided over the body. The heat from the stones penetrates the muscles releasing tension loosening tight muscles. The movements during a Hot Stone Massage are slow and deliberate in order to induce your muscles and your mind to release and relax. The slow massage mixed with heat and aromatherapy allows your body to relax and your mind to let go. Ahh…
Aches and pains are melted away by specially trained hands. The stones are heated in water to 120 to 130 degrees in a special stone warmer. (Once the massage starts and the lid is off the water stays around 118-120) I am able to retrieve stones from the water without gloves. The stones are hot, but not so hot that I cannot hold them in my hands. After all, if I can’t hold them I won’t be able to glide them across your muscles. Safety first!
CAUTION: May cause happiness 🙂
