The hot stone massage that you’ve (probably) never had!
Our hot stone massage is not what you typically experience at a traditional spa. Warm stones are used as an extension of the therapist’s hands to massage tense muscles, allowing for a deeper, more therapeutic massage than what is commonly offered.
Hot towels are incorporated into your session to further relax muscles and quiet your nervous system. Himalayan salt stones may also be used to add additional therapeutic benefits. As always, pressure is customized to suit your needs.
Hot stone massage is similar to a traditional Swedish massage but incorporates the use of heated rocks to assist in the release of muscle tension.
The short answer is “everyone”, but we often recommend it to those that like heat or prefer the therapeutic effects of a deeper massage.
Recommended session time varies based on your body and goals. 60 minutes is just enough time for most people to receive a full-body massage without any special attention to problem areas. If you would like your therapist to spend extra time on a specific area or if you are more muscular (athletes, etc), 90 minutes is recommended. 120 minutes is recommended for those that have more muscle mass AND have specific issues to address.
