Why do people get hot stone massages?

Glow Med Spa_PatrickMany people find the warmth of the hot stones to be comforting and relaxing during their massage treatment.  Hot stone massage is suited to people who tend to feel chilly or who have cold feet. It’s also suited for people who have muscle tension but prefer a lighter massage.  Your Massage Therapist can adapt the pressure, heat and any other elements you notice during the massage; just be sure you communicate what you are feeling!
