The therapist uses heated stones to massage specific areas, such as acupressure points. The stones can be temporarily placed or used as tools for massage. Hot stones are a great addition to other massage techniques. They can help you relax and soothe your body, transmitting heat deep into your body.
Deep tissue massage is ideal for treating certain "trouble spots", which are painful and stiff in your body. Massage therapists use slow, deliberate strokes to apply pressure to layers of muscles, tendon, and other tissues beneath your skin. Deep tissue massage is less rhythmic than other types, but it can be very therapeutic. It may help with chronic tension patterns and muscle injuries such as back strain.
