Having only read about the benefits of hot stone massage this is my personal experience that I would like to share with you. It was my first time to have a Hot Stone Massage treatment and oh boy was I looking forward to it.
As I lay down on the massage table the therapist slowly introduced the heat from the stones to the area of my body she was working on. The warm heat from her hands first was very comforting and felt good on my skin but this was just a taster of what was to come that I can only describe as pure bliss.
As she introduced the hot stones to my body the immediate feeling was of warmth and soothing. As the therapist worked on the different areas of my body (from toes to head) I quickly fell deeper and deeper into the most relaxing state I have ever experienced during a Massage. As she placed the stones on different areas and massaged me with the stones, my weary body had totally melted away to a state of pure and utter relaxation.
