Hot stone massage incorporates heated stones as part of the therapy. The therapist will uses the smooth stones as either an extension of their hands or by placing them on the body. The stones are typically very smooth-surfaced basalt stones, in which the high iron content in basalt helps the stones retain heat during the massage. The heat can be both deeply relaxing and help to warm up tight muscles that will allow the therapist to work more deeply, more quickly and with less pressure.
