Hot stone massage, as the name suggests, utilizes warmed stones of varying sizes and textures. Larger stones are used for larger areas of the body (such as the back) and smaller stones are used on smaller areas. Stones can either be used during the massage or they may be left to sit undisturbed for a specific duration of time.
Hot stone massage is used to encourage faster and deeper muscle relaxation during a massage session. The stones used are typically basalt (which has high iron content) and are warmed prior to the massage. This particular stone warms quickly and will retain most of its heat during your massage. Nicolette is an experienced and skilled masseuse and uses this technique to provide a deeply relaxing experience which enables her massage to be more effective.
