Hot Stone Massage in Santa Monica

Take advantages of our fabulous 60 minute Hot Stone Therapy with our organic coconut oil.

Hot stone massage is a natural therapy in which warmed stones are positioned on parts of the client’s body of to maximize the therapeutic benefit.

The stones used are smooth surfaced river basalt stones and are heated in a professional sanitized water warmer before use.

The high iron content in basalt helps the stones retain heat during the massage.

Hot stone massages are beneficial on both physical and psychological levels.

The heat from the stones helps your muscles relax, allowing the massage therapist to manipulate your deep tissues more effectively.

Overly tense muscles can hinder the massage procedure, so if your muscles are extremely tight or stiff, the heated stones may provide the extra relaxation you need for the massage to be beneficial in releasing tension and easing sore muscles.

We use extra virgin coconut oil or a rich vegan body cream.
