"What is the purpose of a hot stone massage?" Our RMT Danny Flores answers one of the questions submitted by our clients.

Danny: Hot stone massage promotes deeper muscle relaxation through the placement of smooth, heated stones at key points on the body. It melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness and increases circulation. 

I strongly recommend scheduling a longer appointment (90 min) when booking a hot stone massage. It is a nice blend of relaxation and therapeutic massage to help release stress and muscle tension. 
Danny has been part of the Apex team since May 2015. He first started his journey at Apex as a practicum student and is now working as a fully registered massage therapist. Danny graduated from a 2 year, 3000 hours massage therapy program at Makami college in April 2016. Danny has been building a loyal clientele while offering his clients several types of treatment that address their concerns; focusing on relaxation or deep tissue and also offers hot stone therapy.

When he is not massaging, Danny likes to socialize with friends, or visit the mountains to hike or snowboard. Danny enjoys going to the gym while staying physically fit.
