What is Hot Stone Massage Therapy?
Hot stone massages have been a regular practice for many cultures around the world for thousands of years and are known to be one of the most relaxing forms of massage therapy available. Fun Fact: Hot stone has been remembered for thousands of years in practices in indigenous cultures in various parts of the world.
Hot Stone may be the most relaxing Massage Therapy treatment you will experience. Basalt Lava Stones are immersed in very warm water and placed on specific points on your body. Your Baden RMT will use the stones as heated tools in their hands to massage away areas of tightness and tension in muscles, fascia and discomfort within joints, decreasing pain and augmenting function. Hot stone therapy decreases stress by overriding the fight or flight response we experience daily.
