What are Hot Stone Massages?

hot stone massage

Hot stone massages are great for alleviating tension in muscles and soft tissue throughout your body. Smooth rocks typically made of basalt rock, known for its ability to retain heat, are placed on specific parts of the body to help relieve tightness in muscles. The rocks are placed on areas like the spine or back, stomach, chest, face or palms, and feet. Also, the massage therapist will massage your body while using the hot stones using different techniques like long strokes, tapping, or circular motions. Hot stone massages are great for anyone who prefers a lighter massage, but still needs the benefit of deep tissue relaxation. If you or a loved one experiences back spasms, chronic back pain, or stiff muscles a hot stone massage may benefit you greatly. At Island Chiropractic, a chiropractor in Plainview, our massage therapists are trained in hot stone massage and we can help melt away your stress and tension.
