Hot stone massage is a specialty massage that uses smooth, heated stones. They are often basalt, a black volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat well. It is a deeply soothing, relaxing form of massage. The heat helps tight muscles release.

The heat of the stones helps muscles release more quickly than in traditional massage.

The use of hot stones for healing dates back to ancient times. The stones Pippa uses for this treatment are made of basalt, a type of rock that is rich in iron, so they retain heat.

Hot Stone Massage Description

* This article is updated daily from Wikipedia. It may contain minor formatting errors.

A stone massage is a massage that uses smooth, flat, and heated rocks placed at key points on the body.

Technique

Stones (usually basalt)* are placed into a purpose-built Stone Heater which is filled with water. The water is typically heated to 50-53 degrees Celsius (122-127 degrees Fahrenheit).*Once the stones have heated sufficiently, some are placed onto specific points on the body (such as the back, hands, etc.) and others are held by the massage therapist and used to work the muscles.

Certain styles of stone massage also incorporate chilled stones into the routine. These stones are usually marble, and are placed into a bowl of iced water before use. A competent stone massage therapist will know when it is best to use hot stones and when it is best to use cold stones.

Also, a new type of therapeutic device called the Spa Rock, which is an electronically heated simulated hot rock, has been recently introduced.*
