    • 1). Assemble all of the materials you will need for the hot stone manicure. This treatment is more involved than a standard manicure and requires additional prep time and a partner to help with the treatment. You can buy massage stones separately or look for a complete massage stone kit for the full spa experience.

    • 2). Boil your massage stones in a pot of water to heat them thoroughly. Savvy-Spa.com recommends heating your water to a temperature of 120 to 150 degrees Fahrenheit. Massage stones are typically made from a smooth river rock such as basalt, which retains heat well during the massage.

    • 3). Soak your hands in a basin of warm water while your stones are heating to soften the skin and cuticles and loosen the muscles in the hands. Consider adding essential oils for a more aromatic and pleasant experience. Oils could range from lavender for relaxation to peppermint for invigoration, depending on your personal preference.

    • 4). Massage the hands, wrists and arms of the person who is receiving the hot stone manicure. If doing this with a partner, you can take turns massing each other. The warmth of the stone will provide a warming sensation that will help dissolve any tension in the muscles.

    • 5). Rinse your hands with warm water and dry them before applying a moisturizing lotion. The heat from the stones will help to open your pores, making your skin more receptive to hydrating treatments.

    • 6). Continue with a standard manicure, which can include trimming, filing and painting the finger nails.
