Hot Stone Massage & Heat Therapy

Like the name says, a hot stone massage is a massage technique that uses heated basalt stones to relax the muscles.

The back is the most popular site for a hot stone massage but it can also be used in other areas. At Rub massage, we tend to use hot stones as a compliment to our Remedial Massage sessions.  (It’s glorious in the winter months).

Benefits of a hot stone massage

Like any other massage, a hot stone massage is done to promote relaxation, both physically and psychologically.

Some of the conditions that can benefit from a hot stone massage include:

  • Muscle pain and tension
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Pain caused by illnesses like arthritis
  • Insomnia
  • Hypertension
  • Sports injuries

Who should get a hot stone massage?

Even though a good hot stone massage can provide relief for many conditions, you do not have to have a condition to benefit from heat therapy.

A hot stone massage can still perform wonders for you even if you feel like you are in good health. It can stimulate the body’s natural healing processes like fighting inflammation and general relaxation of the mind.

Don’t take our word for it. Book yourself a remedial massage today and let us know that you’d love to try the stones!  Experience this feeling for yourself.

Do hot stone techniques hurt?

Not at all.  Stones are heated to approximately 55 degrees and when applied to the skin is kept in motion.

Our hot stone massage is performed by a professional that is trained to give you the best experience possible.

The stones are heated with a temperature-controlled stone heater.  Looks a bit like a slow cooker.
