Hot Stone: Phase 2
The next step consists in the actual manual massage, this phase in which we go to discover from the towel or blanket the area we want to massage in order to carry out our maneuvers; clearly at this moment we have the opportunity to put all our luggage on the plate for what concerns a relaxing massage and it becomes evident how important it is to have attended numerous courses in this regard.

At this juncture we will have to take care of a number of things including the temperature of the stones, checking it before placing them on our client’s skin to avoid unpleasant burns; move the stones themselves during the maneuvers to ensure that all sides of the stone come into contact with the surface to be massaged, thus making the resulting contact always remain warm and pleasant.

Happy relaxation everyone!
