Hot stone massage therapy originated in India as mode of healing in Ayurvedic medicine to treat stress and tension in the body and restore overall balance. Simply put, hot stone therapy is the use of hot stones (and sometimes cold stones) in place of hands. During a hot stone therapy session, your massage therapist will place stones in areas where there are energetic blockages and muscular tension. Your sensual massage therapist may also use techniques of Swedish massage in conjunction with hot stone therapy to assist in moving energy and supporting optimal relaxation. Hot stone therapy is a deeply therapeutic healing modality that can be added to your sensual massage or experienced on its it own. We highly recommend this uniquely soothing treatment.
