Heated, smooth stones are placed on certain points on the body to warm and loosen tight muscles and balance energy centers in the body. The massage therapist may also hold stones and apply gentle pressure with them. The warmth is comforting. Hot stone massage is good for people who have muscle tension but prefer lighter massage.
Sports massage is specifically designed for people who are involved in physical activity. But you don't have to be a professional athlete to have one- it's also used by people who are active and work out often. The focus isn't on relaxation but on preventing and treating injury and enhancing athletic performance.
Like shiatsu, Thai massage aligns to energies of the body using gentle pressure on specific points. Thain massage also includes compression and stretches.
