Spa Week®’s favorite sweetheart treatment has always been the Hot Stone Massage, but the newest twist for Fall is cooler than past seasons. Instead of using all hot stones, a Hot and Cold Stone Massage treatment includes the application of cold stones as well, adding multi-dimensional stimulation. Alternating the hot and cool stones helps every cell in the body to receive more oxygen and nutrients and encourages a more effective removal of toxins. It’s great for releasing deep, chronically held tension in the body, and is known to refresh and stimulate the mind.

When it comes to Hot and Cold Stone Massages, each spa has its own techniques, but essentially you will be introduced to the type of stone (basalt, Marble, gemstone) and the style of stone work (La Stone, Japanese, or a personal style). The therapist will glide the stones across your body, place them on your back, slide them on your face, place them in between your toes, depending on the spa and technique.
