Hot stone massage is a variation on classic massage therapy. Heated smooth, flat stones are placed on key points on the body. The massage therapist may also hold the stones and use them to massage certain areas of the body.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 smooth – they are smoothed over time by the river current. Como Shambhala has one of the best wellness massage, and they have an excellent hot river stone massage to relax and unwind and to soothe the body and soul. COMO Shambhala’s powerfully therapeutic Hot River Stone Massage uses smooth warm oiled rocks that glide along muscles, correcting tensions at the deepest level, soothing knots in the muscles and working with dynamic stretches. Como Shambhala is located at a very scenic and tranquil location, offering peace and privacy for their guests, only a handful of exclusive guests will be entertained at this beautiful hotel.

The warmth of the stones increases circulation, relaxing your muscle tissues and allowing your therapist to effectively massage even deeper muscles. When we combine Hot Stone techniques with a Full Body massage, you experience the healing effects of reduced pain from chronic conditions, decreased stress and tension, increased flexibility, improved circulation and an overall sensation of relaxation and warmth. A hot stone massage, however, takes a lot of skill and sensitivity on the part of the therapist.
