About the Treatments

Hot Stone Therapy

Hot stone massage is a form of bodywork that uses smooth, heated basalt stones, a volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat well. The heat is penetrating and deeply relaxes both body and mind. The stones are heated in water, and are both placed on the body and used in the palms of the hands to massage the body.

This modality promotes profound relaxation, increased detoxification, and relief of long-standing muscular tension, stress and fatigue. The application of heat relaxes the muscles, increasing the effectiveness of the massage. Hot stones have been used therapeutically in a variety of cultures throughout history, including Native American, Asian, and European.

If you have received Hot Stone massage elsewhere, and were not satisfied as the therapist merely glided the stones over the surface of your skin, Healing Haven Massage and Wellness Therapists not only use the stones to warm the tissues, but also use the stones as tools to work deeply into your "knots". We believe that this is the best combination of heat and deep tissue you will find in the Rochester area. Come and experience for yourself.
