Hot Stone Massage
Hot Stone Massage uses heated flat stones in conjunction with a remedial massage techniques to offer a deeply relaxing massage that just melts away the tension.
Before your massage, the stones are heated to a consistent temperature around 45-50°C. During the massage, the stones are placed on specific points along the body and then used as an extension of the practitioner's hands in the massage.
