Hot stone therapy is most often used to complement a massage session. The massage therapist will place heated stones on your body to remain for a period of time. Muscles are sometimes pretreated with the heated stone placements to allow the massage therapist to more easily perform deep tissue manipulations. Other times, the heated stones are only used as a tool, rather an extension of the massage therapist’s’ hands.
