A hot stone massage is what?

A hot stone massage is one type of massage therapy. It can be used to your entire body to treat sore muscles and soft tissue injuries.

When doing a hot stone massage, heated, flat, smooth stones are used to specific body parts.

The stones are often made of basalt, a volcanic rock type that retains heat. The temperature of heated massage stones ranges from 130 to 145 degrees, according to the University of New Hampshire Health Services.

      The stones could be positioned:

  • along your spine
  • on your stomach
  • on your chest
  • on your face
  • on your palms
  • on your feet and toes

     Heated stones may be used by massage therapists while they apply Swedish massage techniques to your body.

  • long strokes
  • circular movements
  • vibration
  • tapping
  • kneading

On rare occasions, a hot stone massage will also utilize cold stones. After using hot stones to relax the skin, cold stones can be used to shrink any engorged blood vessels.
