Hot Stone Massage Therapy

 

Ascending Touch Massage now offers a complimentary hot stone massage treatment with every massage. Of course you can opt-out if this isn’t your preference, but if you haven’t had the hot stone treatment before, we would highly recommend you give it a try!

Combining hot stones with a full body massage provides a very therapeutic and relaxing spa experience. This combination encourages blood flow throughout the body and has a sedative effect that can help promote better sleep, stress reduction, help to ease tensed muscles, and is beneficial to the immune system. Hot stones can also be beneficial for calming nerves and promoting a healthy functioning nervous system.

We do not place the stones on the body for any extended amount of time. We keep the stones moving for a safe and enjoyable massage experience. Warm stones have been used for therapeutic purposes for hundreds of years. Native Americans would place the stones over an open fire and place on the body where needed. Generally, the stones that are used today in the spa industry are made from basalt.

As with any form of treatment, you should check with your health care practitioner if you have any health conditions before you schedule an appointment. Here is a list of some of the conditions where hot stone massage would not be right for you : Pregnancy, Fever, Acute System Condition, Advanced Diabetes, Cancer, Skin Conditions, Recent Surgeries. Keep in mind this applies with any condition where you are under a physician’s care.

We want you to thoroughly enjoy your time here at Ascending Touch. Your safety and comfort is our priority at all times. Each massage is tailored to fit each individual’s needs. We spend time with you before each session to discuss any changes or requirements needed to make your session the most enjoyable experience possible!
