Have you ever gotten a hot stone massage? What is hot stone therapy? Well not only does it feel amazing, there are also many health benefits to receiving a Hot Stone Massage.
Hot stone massage is proven to be safe and effective in treating the following:
- carpal tunnel
- tension from strained muscles
- muscle spasms and chronic stress
Using the hot stones during a massage, improves circulation and “energy flow” throughout the body, aiding in detoxification, activating our immune systems.
Deep Muscle Relaxation
The heat from the stones helps your muscles relax, allowing the massage therapist to manipulate your deep tissues more effectively. Overly tense muscles can hinder the massage procedure, so if your muscles are extremely tight or stiff, the heated stones may provide the extra relaxation you need for the massage to be beneficial in releasing tension and easing sore muscles.
The therapist will use hot stones throughout the massage and will place several stones in strategic “energy points” or acupressure points of the body, including the spine, hands, feet and even toes to help prepare the body for massage.
We generally recommend that you book a 90 minute session if you would like a full Hot Stone Treatment, but therapists can also accommodate 60 minute Hot Stone sessions.
