Hot stone massage is a wonderful massage where the therapist massages the client with warm smooth Basalt rocks or stones.  The heated stones are used to intensify the feeling of your massage by melting away muscle tension and stiffness.  The therapist may also use different techniques  placing them on the body and leaving them for a various amount of time for the increase of circulation to a specific area. The heat can be both deeply relaxing and help warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply, and more efficiently.

The Origins of Hot Stone Massage

Hot stones warmed by fire were used by Native Americans to treat aching muscles, but the modern revival of hot stones in massage is generally credited to Mary Nelson, a native of Tucson, Arizona.
