Japanese hot stone massage

is the manipulation of the superficial and deep layers of the muscles and connective tissues through the use of hot basalt stones.
Heat has long been used as a tool to soften and open tissue by way of increasing the flow of blood, oxygen, and nutrients. The hot stones have a sedating effect on the nervous system and aid in deeper bodywork, which leaves the recipient thoroughly worked and deeply relaxed.
