Hot and Cold Stone Massage

$110/60 minutes, $165/90 minutes

Smooth stones are heated and lubricated with oils or essential oils.  The therapeutic effects of the heat are used to relax the muscles more deeply.  The heat of the stones is three times stronger and penetrates deeper than the hands.  The unique experience can be tremendously calming and relaxing.  When combined with the hot stone treatment, the cold stones can provide a pleasing contrast.  Some of the cautions and / or contraindications for hot stone therapy would be clients with diabetes who might experience a low level of tolerance or sensitivity.  In some cases, clients with diabetes may be contraindicated for this type of massage.  Other clients that might be contraindicated for hot stone massage would be clients with auto immune disease such as lupus or people with multiple sclerosis.
