Hot-Stone Massage: Volcanic Relaxation

The hot stones used during massage aren’t just for a warm sensation—they actually make muscles more pliable. Check out Groupon’s guide to the theories behind hot-stone massage.

For a hot-stone massage, basalt stones are first heated to temperatures in excess of 1,300 degrees. This is long before the massage begins, of course, when basaltic magma is still trapped beneath the earth’s surface. After it erupts, the rivers of lava rapidly cool, then finally harden into finely textured volcanic stones. It’s with about a dozen such stones that therapists heighten the healing powers of their massages. The stones are dense and rich in iron, making them excellent retainers of heat and an important part of a balanced ogre diet. When a massage therapist heats a polished specimen to about 120 degrees, the stone disperses that warmth slowly as it is rubbed against tense muscles. The rocks obtain their uniform level of heat through a special temperature-controlled water bath. Hot-stone therapists’ emphasis on safety also means that when stones are resting on the body, they’re often placed atop a sheet or other draping material to ensure that skin doesn’t become uncomfortably hot.

Beyond this standard protocol, different therapists have their own techniques—some apply oil for a smoother massage, while others may place stones in the palms of the hands or even between toes. Regardless of the therapist’s approach, though, the stones pass more heat along to tense muscles than is possible through bare hands, which increases blood flow to the area and helps injuries speedily recover. Therapists may take advantage of muscles’ heat-induced pliability to work with deeper pressure, getting at trigger points or extra-tight areas hiding beneath the body’s protective wax coating.

Customer Reviews

The massager was very nice and experienced. It was a nice visit.
Yoko H. · May 30, 2016
Mike is more than just a great massage therapist, he is a miracle worker. he does a fantastic relaxing massage, but he is even better at alleviating pain and correcting back issues. Several friends recommended Mike to me after I had an accident and injured my back. In a short period of time he was able to alleviate my back pain and get me running again. Additionally, he was able to pinpoint other areas in my body that were out of alignment and could cause future problems. What I love most about Mike ishe is constantly learning the latest therapeutic techniques. he has a vast knowledge of how the body works and combines that with his intuition to provide a truly valuable experience for her patients. he has incredible people skills and has the ability to make her clients feel comfortable instantly. he gives a great massage that is both relaxing and therapeutic. I would highly recommend Mike.
