Warm up during the crisp fall season with a Hot Stone Massage
Hot Stone Massage is an extremely effective therapy that allows for the deepest muscle manipulation and relaxation. Heated stones act as an extension of the massage therapists hands. The stones used in this type of massage are typically river rocks or stones made of basalt. The high iron content of these types of stones allows them to retain heat throughout the massage. The massage therapist places the stones on certain “energy points” or acupressure points of the body, including the spine, hands, feet and even toes to help prepare the body for massage. The heat can be both deeply relaxing and help warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply, more quickly. The therapist uses steady pressure to warm and massage the muscles.
*Hot stone massages are beneficial for pain relief and improved circulation. The warm stones and pressure allow blood vessels to expand which is helpful for blood and energy flow throughout the body. This type of massage aids in aiding in detoxification, stimulating our immune system and improving digestion.
*If you are overly tense, a deep tissue may not be the best type of massage for you. Consider a Hot Stone Massage where the heat from the stones immensely helps your muscles relax allowing the massage therapist to work deeper into the muscle tissues more effectively.
