As we are all coping and dealing with the stressors brought on by COVID-19, there’s no better time to relax and allow yourself time to unwind than now. Self-care has never been so important and doing something for yourself that will benefit your health both mentally and physically is vital. While there are many different ways to de-stress, a client favorite is with our hot stone massage.
What is a Hot Stone Massage?
If you’re looking to deeply relax and have some time to yourself, a hot stone massage is the option for you. During this session, a licensed massage therapist will place heated, flat, smooth stones along different parts of your body. These stones, typically made of basalt to retain their heat, will help to reduce and ease tense muscles and any damaged tissues in your body.
Placement of the Stones
There are a few places the hot stones will be placed in order to promote the most benefits for you:
- Feet and toes
