Hot Stone Massage

If your looking for a stress busting treatment designed to relax and unwind, theres nothing better than a hot stone massage. Popular for its ability to soothe both mind and body, the hot stone massage uses a combination off gentle and natural stones in a bid to ease muscular tension, improve circulation and promote well-being, bliss has never sounded so good.

"Stone massage therapy is a great pick-me-up if you’re feeling burnt out. It’s deeply relaxing, one session will leave you feeling fully refreshed and ready to go in no time."

Pain Relief

While all types of massage can help relieve pain caused by tense muscles, stiff joints or injuries, a hot stone massage may provide greater relief due to the intense nature of the massage. Because the hot stones allow the massage therapist to penetrate deeper, you may find that a hot stone massage leaves you feeling physically better than a Swedish or deep-tissue massage that does not incorporate heat.

Improved Circulation

Typically, a massage therapist allows the heated stones to rest on trigger points in your body before beginning the actual massage. As the heat from the stones penetrates into your deeper body tissues, your blood vessels open, resulting in improved circulation. Poor circulation can lead to fatigue, which tenses the muscles, and a buildup of fluid and lactic acid in the muscles. Increased circulation delivers more oxygen to the muscles, which can help ease aches and pains.

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.
