HOT STONE MASSAGE
What Is A Hot Stone Massage? Is It Expensive?
The use of hot stones for healing dates back to ancient times, and hot stone massage can be applied to both Swedish and deep tissue massage therapy. Hot stone specialist Joe Cinquina uses the stones to massage the muscles in conjunction with a variety of manual massage techniques. The amount of pressure and the shape of the stone varies, depending on whether the massage is for relaxation or deep tissue therapeutic purposes, but in both cases the stones allow for deeper penetration with less pressure and this allows the muscles to achieve a greater degree of relaxation. There are medical conditions which contraindicate the use of hot stones, and we evaluate each client prior to a hot stone session. There is no charge for hot stones when used in an orthopedic massage. For Swedish and deep tissue massages, hot stones may be added for an additional ten (10) dollars.

Massage is not recommended:
Always check with your doctor before getting a massage:
Based on your pre-session interview, the massage therapist may conclude that it would be prudent to refer you to a physician and reschedule your session. Massage therapists are neither trained nor legally permitted to diagnose. However, they are trained to be observant and to be aware of signs that may contraindicate massage. In keeping with the massage therapist's code of ethics, it is always better to err on the side of caution for your well being. It is strongly recommended that you follow your therapist's advice if you are referred for consultation. Our policy is that you will not be charged for the session.
