I had a single mother who used to come get a massage every Monday evening. On the fourth visit every month, she would always want hot stone. She enjoyed every massage, as they all were stress reducing and relaxing, but she wanted the feel of the warmth of the stones to help guide her into a deeper state of relaxation. She moved out of state, but when we talk, she occasionally will bring up how wonderful those massages were, and how much she misses them….which makes my day. I have a special place in my heart for single mothers, and know how important it is for them to de-stress, relax and rejuvenate as they work hard and raise a family. She told me hot stone massage was more therapeutic for her than psychotherapy….that’s how relaxed and peaceful one can feel after a session.
Every therapist has their own unique way of doing massage and integrating their own techniques with the stones. I encourage experimentation with the stones, and it’s fun to see how each student makes hot stone massage their own.
Hot Stone Massage is the most frequently requested treatment after Swedish and Deep Massage. Many spas want their therapists to know hot stone massage, be prepared to provide this service to your own private clients or for work at a spa or salon.
