So, now I'm going to show you some hot stone techniques. One where you can access the shoulder a little bit more deeply.

So again, I have my palm sized stone. I'm going to go ahead and reach under here. Under Gina's shoulder. You can see the scapula pop right up like that for you. And it's, feels really good. It doesn't feel bad at all.

Go ahead and take the edge of this stone and you're going to go right underneath that scapula. And when you get up to the top of the shoulder just give it a nice pull down.

And the warmth of the stone feels really good. It sinks right into those muscle tissues. Let's try that one more time. This actually breaks down scar tissue adhesions and it also increases range of motion in that shoulder.

And the heat works double duty. So, more than just applying your hand or a cold massage to a back, that heat lets you sink into that area much better.

So, that's just one of the many tips that you can use in a hot stone massage.
