Hot Stone Therapy

for Massage Therapists and Reiki Practitioners

Hot Stone Therapy is a terrific addition to your MASSAGE or REIKI practice. It will enhance your own present skills, your sense of touch, and support the greater needs of your client.

Offering Hot Stone Massages or REIKI is a very easy going, gentle way of assisting your client to deepen their relaxation level; inviting calm, peace and happiness. The healing benefits are ongoing. There is a warmth and energy arising from the stones that will relax your hands and enhance your energy as well.

Hot Stone Therapy is a popular natural therapeutic technique that promotes pain relief, healing, and energy alignment. You will utilize hot stones to heat your client’s body, relax muscles & ease stress, while also supporting greater ease in elimination of harmful toxins and body waste.

The stones calmly bring your client into a parasympathetic state as it improves general blood circulation through vasodilation.

What happens during a Hot Stone Massage or Hot Stone Reiki Session?

A hot stone session can be offered as a Massage or Reiki Therapy session. You will see how soothing this experience can be for your clients right away.

During a Hot Stone Massage Therapy or Hot Stone Reiki Therapy session, smooth, flat basalt stones are warmed in a stone roaster in a water bath then placed on specific parts of the client’s body. The stones are made of basalt, a type of volcanic rock that retains heat. Hot massage stones are heated to between 110-120 degrees Fahrenheit (Approx. 43-49 degrees Celsius).
