Hot Stone Massage

​This unique treatment involves the use of heated basalt stones derived from volcanic lava. Due to its natural origin, basalt stone retains heat and is a perfect medium for delivering deep heat to tight muscle tissue, helping to decrease muscle tension and increase circulation. The use of cold basalt stones or jade can help decrease areas of inflammation and swelling. Additional therapy during a hot stone treatment may include aromatherapy to relax or stimulate the body through the olfactory senses and/or the use of chakra stones to rebalance energies, resulting in enhanced therapeutic effects.
