Hot Stone Massage
Typically, the therapist allows the heated stones to rest on trigger points in your body before beginning. As the heat from the stones penetrates into your deeper body tissues, your blood vessels open, resulting in improved circulation. Poor circulation can lead to fatigue, which tenses the muscles, and a buildup of fluid and lactic acid in the muscles. Increased circulation delivers more oxygen to the muscles, which can help ease aches and pains.
As with the other massage therapies, hot stone massage is associated with many benefits. Some of the benefits are easy relaxation of the muscles, rids the body of stress, aids in the release of toxins and also reduces pain. By improving circulation throughout the body it promotes overall health. Hot stone massage is used as a therapy to relieve certain health problems such as arthritis, anxiety, stress, back pain, depression, insomnia and problems related to blood circulation, and is of course a cool weather “warm me up” treat! Hot stone massage can also bring calmness to the mind, it helps you to go in to a state of deep meditation. It is perfect for relieving stress from work, school, children or anything!
