With the placement of smooth, water-heated stones at key points of the body, this treatment will help relax your muscles and allow the therapist to access your deeper muscle layers. Combining hot stone protocols with a full body massage provides a very healing and effective experience. The hot stones also expand blood vessels, which increase blood flow throughout the body. The hot stones have a sedative effect that can help relieve chronic pain, reduce stress, and promote deep relaxation.
