Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone therapy is where basalt stones are heated and applied to the body providing a highly relaxing, stress reducing massage. The treatment promises to truly harmonise, restore and invigorate the body at its deepest level. The treatment incorporates traditional touch techniques in addition to the placement of the hot stones.
Combining hot stone protocols with a full body massage provides a very healing and effective experience. The hot stones also expand blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body. The hot stones have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.
The Benefits of Hot Stone Massage
The heat from the stones enables the muscles of the body that are aching and/or sore to feel relaxed. This is just one of the benefits of a hot stone massage. Let’s go over some of the other possible benefits:
Improves circulation and blood flow within the body and could prevent many major and minor health problems.
Reduces pain and discomfort during the massage. Even a deep tissue massage becomes relatively painless after the hot stones have been placed on your body.
Alleviates stress and enhances your mental clarity. This could help treat mental disorders and might also improve memory and focus.
Regulates symptoms associated with painful conditions, especially arthritis.
Calms the nerves and ensures optimum functioning of the nervous system.
