HOT STONE MASSAGE
Experience another level of relaxation with our comforting hot stone massage! This special massage uses the warmth of smooth, heated stones to help relax tense, aching muscles, allowing our professional therapist to gently knead the body without using deep pressure.
The use of hot stones dates back to the Native Americans, who used stones heated by fire to treat body aches. QMST’s hot stone massage uses sanitized flat basalt stones, an iron-rich black volcanic rock, to relay heat on the body while the therapist treats other areas of the body. The relaxing heat from these hot stones helps warm up rigid muscles, calms the nervous system, and improves blood circulation.
Our hot stone massage is fitted for those who prefer a lighter massage to relieve muscle tension. It is also great for those who often have cold feet, back pain, poor circulation, arthritis, and osteoarthritis. It can also help those who are suffering from insomnia, anxiety, and depression.
A hot stone massage usually takes an hour or more, depending on the client’s condition. The client may request lava shells or steamed towels in place of hot stones. The heat of the stones may vary according to the client’s condition and request.
