Hot Stone Massage provides intense relaxation and it combines heat therapy with Swedish massage. It eases muscle stiffness and is an intensely peaceful and relaxing treatment. Steam Heated Basalt Stones are placed on key points of the body and heat is applied directly from the stones which improves circulation and helps to remove and filter any toxins. This relaxes the muscles and soothes the nervous system, increases flexibility in joins and provides relief from acute and chronic pain. This makes a hot stone massage more intense than a traditional massage.
