As for the name, hot stone massage Tacoma is a type of massage in which hot stones are used for the massage.
The stone used in hot stone massage is not ordinary. Instead, these are special natural stones made up of basalt. The spa collects these stones from the areas where they are found most commonly. After collecting these stones, the rocks undergo a large process before the therapist uses them for doing hot stone massage.
The process starts by smoothing the surface of the stones. The therapist cannot rub stones on your bodies with hard and harsh surfaces. It will damage our skin. There is no point in doing the massage with such bad rocks. Hence to make them suitable for the massage, the therapists cut the sharp edges of the stones and then smooth them for rubbing purposes. Once the surface of the rocks is smooth, the therapist will apply different types of ointments on the rocks to make them softer and shiny. The stones coated with some cream are also suitable for hot stone massage.
After this step, the therapist will start disinfecting the stones before using them for hot stone massage. Disinfection is very important nowadays because we do not know which surface is infected with the virus. Hence, the therapist will disinfect the stones thoroughly so that you and the therapist will stay from the germs and viruses.
After the disinfection process is completed, the therapist will heat the stones at a specific temperature, which is important for doing a hot stone massage. Next, the therapist will warm the rocks in a special furnace designed to hear up the stones used in hot stone massage. After heating the stones, the pre-processing of the hot stone massage is done.
Now the spa is ready to take the bookings for hot stone massage.
How Will Hot Stone Massage Happen?
The process of hot stone massage is no different from other massages. The difference only lies in the item which is used for doing the massage. In hot stone massage, hot stones are used for massaging, while in other massages, the therapist uses his hands, wrists, knuckles, and elbows to massage and apply strokes on your body.
The sequence of hot stone massage is very simple. When you book your hot stone massage, the spa will give you time to arrive at the resort. However, if you reach late at the resort, the management will not give you extra time for the massage, so it is better to be on time or before time.
When you reach the spa, the spa management will lead you to your massage room. I recommend that when you enter your massage room, take a deep breath and try to grab the atmosphere of the massage room. The therapist and the spa management have decorated the massage room so that whoever enters the room will feel relaxed and calm. Relaxing and calming your body is the main purpose of hot stone massage. The soothing atmosphere of the spa room adds a factor to the blessings of hot stone massage.
When you feel fully relaxed in your massage room, the therapist will enter the room. Do not feel panic if there is a male massager. They are very professional. They will only do their work. You need to remove your clothes so that he can easily do the hot stone massage on your body. If it is not okay for you to remove all your clothes, you can wear some of your clothes. Keep in mind that your therapist will not massage those parts of the body covered with clothes. So try to remove all your clothes. Do not worry; you will not be all bare in the massage room in front of your therapist. The therapist will use a cotton sheet to cover your body which is not under massaging process. Hence you are not completely naked all the time.
After this, your therapist will use the pre-heated hot stones to massage your body. Once the therapist have done the massage, you can wear your clothes again.
