Oil Massage means stimulating the tissues of the body by the hands with the massage oil, in order to promote health and rejuvenation to the entire body. It is designed to let the hands slide more easily during massage session and generally oil massage can provide maximum relaxation for both body and soul. Hot Stone Massage uses water-heated stones to apply pressure and heat to the body. The hot stones used are commonly Basalt stones (or lava rocks) which over time have become extremely polished and smooth. As the stones are placed along the recipient's back, they help to retain heat which then deeply penetrates into the muscles.
