Hot Stone Massage Therapy
Hot Stone Massage is the newest thing in massage therapy. It has been around for a while but people are just discovering how therapeutic it can actually be. These are no ordinary stones and this is no ordinary massage. Try a hot stone massage and see if you like the feeling.
Hot stone massage therapy makes use of basalt stones. They remind you of the smooth ones you used to skip or step on as you crossed a stream. These stones are known to hold heat for long periods of time which works perfectly for an effective massage.
Hot stone massage therapy alleviates several conditions in the body. As you might have guessed, it helps arthritis sufferers and those who are burdened with stress, but also can help those suffering from fibromyalgia, back pain and depression.
What to Expect at your Massage
Hot stones are used in various sizes depending on the area to be massaged. Smaller stones are used in smaller areas and larger ones in larger areas of the body. The stones are usually centered over specific points on the body for maximum heat dissipation. This means that the heat will be released from the stones and absorbed by your body to relax the muscles before the touch massage begins. The stones can be placed directly on your skin or on a towel that is covering your skin.
Once the hot stones have had time to share their warmth, our massage therapist will use essential oils to help the stones glide across your skin as she kneads the muscles. The direction of their kneading and gentle pressure moves toxins out of the organs and tissues. Circulation is greatly increased throughout the body as well.
