Hotstone treatment is the luxurious use of hot basalt stones that are both placed on areas of the body and used with massage techniques to create a deeply relaxing treatment. The heat of the stones penetrates to decrease the tension in the muscles and create absolute calm and an almost out of body experience! Cold marble stones are used in areas of greater tension to relieve inflammation and followed with the heat of the hot stones to increase vasodilation. This provides increased circulation, nutrients and oxygen being brought into the tissues to further relieve muscle tension and decrease overall stress.
Why do I recommend it?
A hotstone treatment is extremely relaxing though entirely therapeutic in it’s own way. The slow movements of the heated stones encourage feelings of deep relaxation. Muscle soreness and body tension melts away leaving one feeling, warm and light and entirely amazing. Try it for yourself or surprise your loved one with a gift certificate! I currently only offer this treatment at Summit Massage Therapy & Wellness.
