What Is Hot Stone Massage?

As the weather gets colder, the appeal of hot stone massage increases. What is hot stone massage and what do you, the consumer, need to know about hot stone massage?

Hot stone massage is a specialty massage that uses smooth, heated stones. They are often basalt, a black volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat well.
