What is a Hot Stone Massage?
Rock Star Massage
Hot Stone Healing Massage uses stones to evoke grounding energy into the body, increase blood flow to areas of tension and aid in releasing trigger points and referral pain . Hand picked Basalt Stones (think river rocks) are heated to 130’-140’ and then placed on specific areas of the body. They are also used as a tool to apply deeper pressure into thickened tissues. Unlike many spas, they are utilized as an extension of the hands, rather than in place of them. Stones are inclusively and intuitively weaved into your massage session unless otherwise noted.
Synchronicity’s Massage Style and Modalities
Each session begins with establishing your individual needs, preferences and goals for healing. While we offer Swedish, Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular & Sports Massage Techniques, a multi-pressure & modality approach is often used due to the fact that different areas of your body require different pressures and approaches for release. Every session is unique and different.
