The stones are heated in a water bath filled with temperature-controlled water. At the time of the massage, the stones are placed on precise areas of the body according to the morphology or the needs of the client. The stones can be coated with oil or massage gel and the therapist can use them as a tool to smooth or rub the skin. The heat emanating from the stones provides a unique and comforting sensory experience.
This care can also be performed using chilled stones. The alternation of hot and cold is called thermotherapy, and it leads to the relief of musculoarticular pain, improvement of blood circulation and provides the care receiver with deep relaxation.
Hot stone massage is not recommended for people with eczema, skin infections, varicose veins, diabetes, cardiovascular problems or immune system deficiency. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should seek the advice of a doctor before receiving this type of care.Find a therapist
