Massages are much more than just hands and oils. At some point, you’ve probably watched a movie or TV show and seen one of the characters lying flat on their stomach while a masseuse placed several circular, black stones on their back.
The stones you see are typically made of basalt, which is a type of volcanic rock that holds heat well. Once heated, the stones are between 130- and 145-degrees Fahrenheit.
Although arranging the stones on clients’ backs is the most common method, the stones can also be placed on the stomach, chest, face, palms, and feet.
Here are some of the amazing benefits hot stone massages offer:
• Alleviate muscle pain and stiffness
• Relieve stress and tension
• May reduce anxiety
• May help with depression
• Improve sleep
• May decrease symptoms caused by cancer
• Helps to increase joint flexibility
