A hot stone massage is a specialty massage that uses smooth, heated stones as an extension of the massage therapist’s hands. The stones also are placed over parts of the body while other parts of the body are being massaged. We at Body N Balance of Wantagh, Long Island find the hot stone massage to be deeply relaxing and warms up tight muscles for deeper therapeutic results.

How Does a Hot Stone Massage Work?

The stones are made of basalt, which is rich in iron allowing them to retain heat well. The stones are immersed in water and heated until they are within a certain temperature range. The massage therapist will heat up your body with the stones by using a traditional swedish massage style. The heat generated by the stones will soothe your muscles, improve circulation, and calm the nervous system.
