Hot stone massage is an ancient technique where hot stones are used as a warm extension of the therapist’s hands and are also placed at different sites on the body.
The heat of the massage stones penetrates the deeper muscle layers quickly to aid in their release.
Hot stone massage therapy can be both relaxing and therapeutic depending on your needs.
Benefits of a Hot Stone Massage

- Provides greater muscular release;
- Improves blood flow;
- Increases relaxation and induces a feeling of well-being;
- Leaves you feeling amazing.
What to expect during your Hot Stone Massage treatment
Treatments can range between 60 and 90 minutes. This particular treatment takes massage to a whole new level. The warmth of the stones takes you to immediate relaxation. Warm stones are placed on different parts of the body at different times. As the muscles warm up from each additional hot stone stroke, the therapist is able to penetrate the muscles at a deeper level providing greater release of muscle tension. The body relaxes more and more muscles are released.
Note: Make sure you drink plenty of water after the treatment to aid in ‘toxin’ clearance.

Transcended to another level of bliss. Michelle is amazing!!!
