A type of massage therapy that uses smooth heated stones. Therapists place the hot stones of specific points on your body and may also hold the stones while giving the massage. The localized heat and weight of the stones warm and relax muscles, allowing the therapist to apply a deeper pressure if needed to those areas without causing discomfort. Essential oils may also be used for aromatherapy.

It dawned on me after having my first massage, that I needed to pursue just how to make people feel the way I felt that day. I had changed careers to enter this humbling field of caretaking.
I have been massaging for 5 years now and have developed several regiments for lifestyles like: those working a desk, on their feet all day, and even those under heavy emotional/psychological stress. The latter regiment requiring a greater sensitivity, has truly rounded my practice to anyone's needs.
From the lightest touch to deep tissue, I am sure with time we can find YOUR massage, have your needs met, and keep your health maintained.
