Hot stone massage therapy is the application of hot stones to the body when you are getting a massage. Typically the stones are basalt stones, which are river rocks, and once the lotion is applied to those stones they turn a nice beautiful black ebony color. Typically the stones are heated in a hot stone warmer, which is somewhat like a crock pot, up to about one hundred and forty five degrees, the lowest temperature that they normally are is one hundred and thirty five degrees, and it depends on the area of the body that the stones are being placed on how hot they will be. 

As with the other massage therapies, hot stone massage is associated with many benefits. Some of the benefits are easy relaxation of the muscles, helps to get rid of stress, helps to release toxins and also reduces the pain. By improving circulation throughout the body it promotes the overall health.
