What is a Hot Stone Massage?

Glow Med SpaHot stone massage is a specialty massage that uses smooth, heated stones. They are often basalt, a black volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat well, but they can be other types. The heat is both deeply relaxing and helps tight muscles release.

What Can I Expect During my Hot Stone Massage?

At Glow Med Spa, the therapist first warms up the body with traditional Swedish massage, then massages with one or more heated stones. As the stone cools, the therapist replaces it with another. The therapist might also leave heated stones on specific points along your spine, in the palms of your hand, on your belly, or even between your toes to improve the flow of energy in your body. After the hot stones have relaxed the muscles, the therapist may put down the stones and use his or her hands to directly massage the skin. The hot stones may then be placed back on to the body and left for a short period of time.

How can I get hot stones added to my Glow Med Spa Massage treatment?

It’s simple. When booking a massage with one of our Spa Coordinators, just ask them to add Hot Stones to your massage. You’ll also enjoy the warmth of our heated massage tables and aromatic hot towels that have been steeped in muscle relaxing essential oils.
