Hot Stone Massage


Get ready for the luxurious experience of hot stone massage

What is a hot stone massage?

A hot stone massage is a massage therapy technique that uses heated stones to provide deep relaxation and promote healing. The stones are typically made of basalt, a type of volcanic rock that retains heat well. Offered by either our Registered Massage Therapists OR Massage Practitioners, they places the stones on specific points of your body to promote relaxation and relieve muscle tension.

Who is it for?

Hot stone massage is suitable for almost everyone, but it's especially beneficial for those looking to relax and unwind after a stressful day or week. It's also great for anyone who experiences chronic pain, muscle tension, or stiffness.


It may also be beneficial for individuals with conditions such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, chronic pain, and poor circulation. Your RMT can also discuss with you whether hot stone massage is a suitable option based on your specific needs and health history. If you're looking for a luxurious massage experience that will leave you feeling rejuvenated and refreshed, a hot stone massage is the perfect choice.

Benefits of hot stone massage

  • Deep relaxation: The heat from the stones helps to soothe your muscles, allowing you to relax deeply and release tension.

  • Pain relief: The heat and pressure from the stones can help to ease muscle pain and soreness.

  • Improved circulation: The heat from the stones can increase blood flow, which can improve your overall health and well-being.

  • Reduced stress and anxiety: The soothing heat and gentle pressure of the stones can help to reduce stress and anxiety levels.

  • Enhanced immune system: Some studies have suggested that hot stone massage may help to boost the immune system.

Please note that our massage practitioners cannot diagnose or treat medical conditions.  Select an RMT for medical concerns.

Is this service covered under insurance?

Hot stone massage is covered by many insurance plans when provided by an RMT, making it an affordable and effective option for self-care. Kindly advise the front desk if Manulife is your insurance provider.

What is the difference between an RMT and a Massage Practitioner?

In Ontario, the main distinction between a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) and a Massage Practitioner lies in their qualifications and practice:

RMTs (Registered Massage Therapists):

  • RMTs undergo extensive training and are licensed healthcare professionals.

  • They possess in-depth knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and various massage techniques.

  • RMTs can assess, diagnose, and treat musculoskeletal conditions and provide therapeutic care.

  • Many insurance plans cover RMT services due to their medical nature.

Massage Practitioners:

  • Massage Practitioners offer relaxation and wellness-focused massage services.

  • They have training but generally less extensive than RMTs.

  • Massage Practitioners prioritize relaxation and muscle tension relief.

  • They do not diagnose or treat medical conditions.

  • Services provided by Massage Practitioners are typically not covered by insurance.

When choosing between an RMT and a Massage Practitioner for your hot stone massage, consider your specific needs. If you have medical concerns, opt for an RMT for their therapeutic expertise. For pure relaxation, a Massage Practitioner can offer an enjoyable experience. Your choice depends on your preferences and requirements.
