Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage is a soothing, highly effective type of Chinese massage. It’s ideal for people with muscle pain and tension or those who simply want to relax. This type of massage therapy is similar to a Swedish massage, but the massage therapist uses heated stones instead of or in addition to their hands.
The heat and weight of these stones melts away stress and soreness. Heat is very soothing on muscles, and we use it to help you loosen up. This type of massage also improves blood flow and relieves pain. Hot stone massage may help:
Ease muscle tension
Improve blood flow
During a hot stone massage, heated stones are placed on different areas over your whole body, particularly the back, legs, and arms. Your therapist may also hold a stone and use it to massage different parts of your body. During the process, they’ll use Swedish massage techniques and gentle pressure. We can even add aromatherapy to the massage experience.
Before a hot stone massage, we encourage you to undress to your level of comfort. During the process, you will be covered with a sheet.
Hot stone massage may relieve more muscle tension than a Swedish massage because of the added heat. If you’re curious about using hot stones, visit us in Pittsburgh, PA! We love pampering our clients and making sure they leave feeling relaxed.
