Hot Stone Massage for Cold Days

One of Absolute’s most popular massages this time of the year in all of our locations (including Carleton Place, Almonte, Kanata, and Ottawa) are hot stone massages.  These massages not only have warming effects that last long after the massage is over, but also help with muscle tension. The hot stones let our therapists relax muscles and avoid having to use deep pressure.  Hot stone massages are great therapy for a variety of health conditions including:

  • Back pain and aches
  • Poor circulation
  • Osteoarthritis and arthritis pain
  • Stress, anxiety and tension
  • Insomnia
  • Depression

Hot stone massages shouldn’t scare you off as maybe we should use the term “extremely warm” stones. Heated, smooth, and flat stones are placed on key points on your body as a form of muscle relaxation.

The stones used retain heat for long, soothing relief.
