Hot Stone Massage
Schedule a hot stone massage in Dover, New Hampshire
A hot stone massage is deeply relaxing. Heated stones are moved to massage and heat each part of the body while larger stones are placed along the body to warm the tissue. The heat from the stones relaxes the muscles and calms the nervous system, resulting in improved circulation, reduced pain, and an improved sense of well being. Hot stone massages are excellent for reducing the effects of arthritis and insomnia. To get started, request an appointment online or give us a call at (603) 742-1980.

Why are hot stones used?

The stones are smooth and usually a few inches long. We heat the stones to a specific temperature range in a controlled heater. If the stones feel too hot or uncomfortable, please let your massage therapist know immediately. We don’t want you to feel any discomfort during your appointment.
