By performing the introductory stroke, the therapist ensures a safe and effective application of the heated stone.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false. Deep pressure can be used with hot stones. Hot stone massage therapy involves placing heated stones on the body and applying pressure to help relax muscles and relieve tension. The heat from the stones can enhance the effects of the massage by promoting deeper muscle relaxation. Therefore, deep pressure can be applied with hot stones during a massage session.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the layout of the stones in the heating element should always remain consistent for efficient and effective heating. If the stones are arranged in a consistent pattern, it ensures that heat is evenly distributed throughout the element, preventing hot spots or areas with insufficient heat.

They are often used in hot stone massages to enhance the therapeutic effects of the treatment. Massage lotions and oils can also be used, but the most suitable product for use with stones is massage gel.

    Explanation
    It is true that if the stones are too hot for your hands, you should not put the stone on the body. This is because it can cause burns or discomfort to the client. Additionally, when the heat is gone from the stone, it should be replaced. This is because the purpose of using hot stones in massage therapy is to provide heat to the muscles and promote relaxation. Once the stone cools down, it no longer serves its intended purpose and should be replaced with a hot stone.
