Previously, we did a service spotlight for one of our less
recognizable services,
Pilates.  Today we wanted to do the same for another one
of our more well-known services: our amazing
Hot Stone
This is a variation of our traditional relaxing massage.  In this massage, a mixture of oils, Swedish
massage techniques and the application of heat come together for a blissful
experience that may provide all the
benefits of a deep tissue massage, but
without the potential soreness.  It’s a win-win.

While the name is “Hot Stone Massage”, we don’t actually
use stones.  Instead, we use
instant reusable heat packs.  We just
couldn’t name it that, “Heat Pack
Massage” just doesn’t have the same ring to it, you know?  
?  We’ve tried several different brands of heat
packs, but Hot to Go packs are the ones we like best.  There
are many benefits to using the heat packs as opposed to the stones themselves:  

1.    Staying at
a constant temperature:
When using
stones, they are initially heated and then placed on you.  The heat is absorbed by your body, and the
stones cool.  Therefore, the relaxing
effect wears off relatively fast.  With
heat packs, this isn’t an issue as they maintain a constant temperature for
around 15 minutes.
2.    Heat packs
don’t run the risk of getting too hot:

Read: no risk of burns!  
3.    Less prep
time for your massage therapist:
stones take about 30 minutes to fully heat up, while heat packs are instant.  This means less wait time for you.

In your Hot Stone Massage,
we first massage oils into your skin using Swedish massage techniques.  The relaxing effect of these strokes makes it
easier for the body to absorb the heat from the heat packs, which are applied
next.  Within 5 seconds of being activated,
they quickly heat up to around 110-120 degrees.  The heat packs are then incorporated into the
strokes of the massage, causing tight or sore muscles to relax and providing
deep relief.

AND REMEMBER: there are NO upcharges in our All-Inclusive
so ask your massage therapist to add this to your next session!
