Hot Stone Massage Raleigh
HOT STONE MASSAGE IN RALEIGH, NC
Hot stone massage is a specialty massage that uses smooth, heated stones. They are often basalt, a black volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat well.
Hot Stone Massage is a deeply soothing, relaxing and healing form of massage. The heat helps tight muscles release. The direct heat relaxes muscles, allowing manipulation of a greater intensity than with regular massage. At Blue Water Spa, our highly trained massage therapists combine tradtional massage with hot stone massage for the most therapeutic and stress releiving treatment possible.
In some cases, the therapist might leave heated stones in specific points along your spine, in the palms of your hand, or even between your toes to improve circulation and relaxation.
The heat from the stones relaxes muscles, increases the blood flow to the area being worked on which further accelerates the healing process. This increase in circulation and the relaxation of the muscles also aids in mental relaxation. Mental relaxation is an important part of a therapeutic massage.
An authentic hot stone massage is not simply the “gliding” of heated stones lightly upon the surface of the skin, but rather the stones are used as tools to deliver effective tissue and muscle massage at a pressure level comfortable to the client. The client can request light, medium or deep pressure, and the client can let the massage therapist know if they are comfortable with the temperature of the stones.
The massage therapists at Blue Water Spa will discuss concerns and customize a massage for each client. Some people want to focus on upper body, others want particular attention paid to the feet and lower legs. Everyone can benefit from the stress relief of a high quality professional massage from a talented, experienced and professional licensed massage therapist.

What to expect during your massage
On your initial visit, you will be asked to complete an intake form to acquaint us with your needs, medical history, likes, and dislikes.
You are escorted to a treatment room where you are instructed to remove as much clothing as you feel comfortable and lie on a treatment table face up under a sheet. The table and room are heated or cooled to your comfort. Soft music and the highest grade natural aromatherapy oils add to your blissful experience. The oils are water soluble and will leave your skin feeling soft but never greasy or sticky. We also have unscented products if you prefer.
The therapist will knock on the door before entering and then discuss the massage process, answering any questions you may have.
You are always draped for comfort during the massage. Only that part of your body being massaged is uncovered. Your chest (woman) and pelvic area are draped and not massaged.
