Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage can assist to reduce stress and anxiety, promote relaxation, and ease deeper muscle pain and muscle tension. It may be helpful for a variety of conditions and circumstances. Heat has long been used to ease muscle tension and pain. It helps increase blood flow to the affected area. The heat may also reduce muscle spasms and increase flexibility and range of motion.

The direct heat relaxes muscles.  The warmer stones also dilate the blood vessels, pushing blood and unwanted waste toxins through the body resulting in the body to detox through your waste.  It is always very important to stay hydrated before and after every treatment to assist your body in the healing itself. The heated stones are used as a tool for gliding along the skin in addition to using massage techniques such as:

  • long strokes
  • circular movements
  • vibration
  • tapping
  • kneading

The stones may be placed:

  • along the spine
  • on your stomach
  • on your legs
  • on your chest
  • on your palms
  • on your feet
