Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage is a therapy based around heated smooth basalt stones integrated into a massage therapy treatment. The use of hot stones is a great relaxing, comforting and stress reducing form of therapy.
Stones are heated to high monitored temperatures that stimulate deep muscle relaxation. Stones are always kept at a tolerable temperature for both the client and the therapist. During a hot stone massage, you can expect that the stones are going to be placed on various areas of the body as well as stones being used during a Swedish massage treatment.
Hot stone therapy can help relieve chronic discomfort, aid in digestion, ease symptoms of PMS, and improve sleep. In addition, it increases circulation and muscle relaxation that reduces overall muscular tension and range of motion.
It can assist in the management of arthritic conditions, fibromyalgia, and some autoimmune conditions that can benefit from massage therapy alone. Anxiety, insomnia, and depression can also benefit from hot stone therapy.
