Hot Stone Massage is a style of massage therapy in which water-treated stones are placed at specific sites on the body to promote relaxation and to help open up the meridians (energy pathways) and maximize the therapeutic benefit.
Muscles are penetrated with the heated stones to allow the therapist to more easily perform deep tissue manipulations. Overly tensed muscles can hinder the massage procedures, so if your muscles are extremely tight and stiff, the heated stones may provide the extra relaxation you need for the massage to be beneficial in releasing tension and easing sore muscles.
