A Hot Stone Massage is done on the skin of the patient using oil or lotion and Hot Stones.The stones are heated to about 100 degrees Fahrenheit, a little hotter than your body, similar to a hot shower, and temperature can be adjusted according to skin tolerance. After applying warm oil to the skin (Grape Seed, Almond, or Jojoba usually) the stones are pressed into the muscles of your back. Using light to deep pressure. As the heat is absorbed by the body, the stones are replaced in the water and more hot stones pulled out to continue the massage. I am working with 12-50 stones of various sizes and shapes to fit all areas of the body. The muscles are heated, stretched and aligned with the spine during the massage.
