Experience the Amazing Healing Power of Hot Stones
Hot stone massage is an effective pain and stress relief that has been around for centuries. It is believed to have originated from ancient India and grew massively in popularity due to it’s healing effects. We see hot stone massage throughout various cultures as traditional folk remedy for pain relief.
Hot stone massage uses a specific material of smooth Basalt river rocks. These stones hold heat very well and have a smooth surface for easy kneading and rolling along the skin surface. Stones are typically heated to 100F to 130F. This is the idea temperature to hold warmth without burning the surface skin. These heated stones are then placed along the spine, back, chest, palms, feet, and even on the face
Benefits of Hot Stone Massage Therapy
Calms and Relaxes the Muscles
Warm stones relax muscles, open up your blood vessels, and increase circulation. As you feel the heat resting on your skin, you’ll also notice the tension slowly disappearing. The heated stones are placed on strategic points to help prepare your body for kneading and rolling massage techniques.
The light pressure from the massage stones can be quite comforting for most clients. The sensation feels like a warm hug to your muscles as you feel stress fade away while the gentle weight of the hot stones sink into your skin. After lying down with the stones on your back, your massage therapist will also work on your specific muscle areas that need tension release and pain relief. This manual pressure coupled with the warmth is an intensely soothing experience.
The best reason to get a hot stones massage is for immediate muscle pain relief. If your work requires you to sit for hours at a time, you most likely suffer from poor posture, back pain, and tight muscles. Regular massages might not be enough to unstick these tight muscles. That is when the heat from hot stone massage therapy comes in. The warmth from the stones helps to loosen sore muscles for better results during the massage and also reaches deep muscle layers during massages.
Improves Circulation and Lymphatic Flow
Poor circulation can lead to fatigue, lack of focus, and muscular tension. A hot stone massage stimulates up blood flow all around your body. This gentle heat then opens up your blood vessels for better blood flow and as your blood circulation improves, more oxygen reaches your brain and muscles. You’ll then feel more alert, less sluggish, and more energetic. More oxygen into your muscles also leads to fewer pains and aches. Hot stone massage also releases toxins from your cells by stimulating better lymphatic flow.
Reduces Muscular Spasms
Muscle spasms can be painful and can show up unexpected throughout the day and interrupt your daily life. Hot stone massages help to loosen up your muscles, reducing the likelihood that they will contract and cause muscle spasms.
If your muscles are not as flexible as when you are younger, it could probably be due to tight joints and muscles. Placing hot stones loosens up your tight muscles and frozen joints better than a regular massage session. Consistent and periodic hot stone massage sessions can improve your overall flexibility.
Pain and stress can disrupt sleep and consequently, your energy levels throughout the day. Regular hot stone massages help to improve your sleep by easing muscles aches and relieving stress. Even one session of hot stone massage makes you feel more relaxed, less anxious and on a better mental state for a restful sleep.
