Hot Stone Massage Benefits

Urban Sanctuary’s basalt stones are used for hot stone massages and pedicures.
Hot Stone Massage offers all of the benefits of therapeutic massage combined with the healing benefits of heat applied to the body. The combination of the two is deeply relaxing and nurturing. The hot stones can be utilized during a deep tissue massage, a neck, back and shoulder massage, or during a pedicure.


 Contrary to popular belief, the stones do not prevent the massage therapist from being able to do specific therapeutic massage work during the session. The stones can be used to warm up the body’s soft tissue in preparation for deeper massage work or they can function as an extension of the therapist’s hands during the entire massage. This serves as a tool for trigger point therapy and other pain relief techniques.

The deep penetrating heat of the stones relaxes and unwinds soft tissue right down to the bones allowing for easy release of tension and bound up muscles. The heat of the stones is great for joint pain, achy feet, stiffness and sore muscles.
