What is Hot Stone Massage?

Hot Stone Massage is a treatment where the therapist incorporates warmed stones on certain areas of the body, such as acupressure points. The stones may be used as massage tools or may be temporarily left in place. Used along with other massage techniques, hot stones can be quite soothing and relaxing as they transmit heat deep into the body, as well as penetrate deep into the muscles. Hot stone massage is a form of hydrotherapy.

About the Stones

The stones used in this hot stone massage are Basalt Rocks, which are an igneous rock created by magma cooling near the Earth's surface.


These rocks retain the heat over a period of time, and are smooth and round.

Stones Massage
Consider This:

Hot stone massage is not recommended for those who:

  • are recovering from a cold/sickness

  • have altered feeling/numbness in any areas

  • have frail or thin skin

  • have inflammation or swelling

  • have heart disease or uncontrolled high blood pressure

  • have internal screws, pins, plates or rods

Getting a treatment

Hot stone massage can take longer than a Swedish Massage Treatment and therefore has been broken down into two treatment formats, either upper body or full body massage.


You can also make specific requests to your therapist based on your needs.
