"Aussie" Hot Stone Back Massages

Imagine being pampered with warm citrus fruit oil and hot, smooth river stones to melt away all your stress. 

Elegant Permanent Cosmetics offers "Aussie" style Hot Stone back massages -- a healing technique that dates back to ancient times.  Contact us to schedule yours today.

What is a Hot Stone Massage?

Hot stone massage is a variation on classic massage therapy. Heated smooth, flat stones are placed on key points of your body. Our technician may also hold the stones and use them to massage your back.

How Does Hot Stone Massage Work?

The hot stones are usually made of basalt, a type of rock that is rich in iron, so they retain heat.

River rocks are normally used because they are so smooth - they have been smoothed over time by the river's current.

The stones are immersed in water and heated until they are within a certain temperature range. The stones may be placed at specific points on the back.

The heat warms and relaxes your muscles, which allows our therapist to apply deeper pressure, if desired.

The warmth of the hot stones improves circulation and calms the nervous system.

Why Do People Get Hot Stone Massage?

Many people find the warmth of the hot stones to be comforting and get it for relaxation.

Hot stone massage is suited to people who tend to feel chilly or who have cold feet. It's also suited for people who have muscle tension but prefer a lighter massage. The heat relaxes muscles, allowing our therapist to work your muscles without using deep pressure.

You'll benefit from hot stone massages for a variety of health conditions:

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

How Do the Hot Stones Feel?

The hot stones are never rough. They are always flat and smooth. The hot stones used on the back are about the size of a large egg, only flat.

The stones are heated in an electrical heating unit that either provides a temperature reading or has an adjustable thermostat control.

Our technician always holds the stones first before touching them to your body, which ensures that the temperature will not be too hot. Everyone, however, has their own comfort range. Be sure to speak up if the stones are too hot for you.

What Can I Expect During my Hot Stone Massage?

Our technician begins by applying warm citrus fruit oil to your back, which allows the hot stones to glide smoothly along the muscles. You are lying face down.  The hot stones are also used to massage your back.

Additional Hot Stone Massage Tips

  • Don't eat a heavy meal before the massage
  • If it's your first time at Elegant Permanent Cosmetics, arrive at least 10 minutes early to complete the necessary forms. Otherwise, arrive 5 minutes early so you can have a few minutes to rest and relax before starting the massage.
