Hot Stone Massage is an ancient technique which has been developed and perfected over centuries into it’s current practice.
Smooth stones made of basalt volcanic rock are warmed up in water in advance, and the basalt stones retain heat well, which means long-lasting warmth during your massage!
Your massage therapist will incorporate them into almost any massage treatment, from Swedish (relaxation) massage, remedial massage, deep tissue massage and sports massage.
They can be used for the entire duration of the massage, or used intermittently.
The result is a soothing and deeply relaxing massage, but what else is great about Hot Stone Massage?
Read on to find out our top 5 benefits of hot stone massage!
1. Achieve Ultimate Relaxation
Heat is a natural relaxant. It sends signals to the brain, telling the mind to relax.
This, in turn, tells the body to relax, allowing your muscles to loosen up and for muscular tension to be released.
For those feeling stressed or suffering from anxiety, hot stone massage may be very beneficial.
It can help to reduce stress and anxiety as it promotes deep relaxation.
Hot stone massage is the ultimate relaxation massage.
2. Relieve Muscular Aches and Pains
Hot stones can be incorporated into most types of massage, including remedial massage.
As heat promotes relaxation, your muscles relax, making it easier for your massage therapist to work through your muscles to relieve tightness, aches and pains.
Remedial massage is a firm to deep pressure massage which focuses on releasing tight muscles and the tension in the surrounding structures.
Sometimes the muscles can be so tense, that they are difficult to work through.
The use of hot stones may provide an extra layer of relaxation that is sometimes needed to be able to effectively ease sore muscles.
Our therapists are already well respected in the community for being able to provide amazing results in freedom from pain and tightness.
The use of hot stones adds another amazing element to the high-quality treatment you expect from us.
3. Improve Circulation
Massage has been shown to improve circulation in the body, and the heat provided by hot stones can help to improve circulation even more!
As the heat from the stones penetrates the muscle tissues, your blood vessels may open more.
The result is improved circulation, as more oxygen is able to reach your muscles, improving their functionality and easing muscular discomfort.
4. Energy Healing
A great hot stone massage not only benefits the body; it may also benefit the mind.
Traditionally, hot stones have been used for energy healing, during which they are placed on key energy points of the body.
The muscle is warmed and energy is released, further improving your body’s natural healing.
5. Promotes Better Sleep
This ultimate relaxation massage may help to improve your sleep!
Not only can massage help to promote getting to sleep by getting rid of the ‘wired and tired’ feeling of your body, but it can also improve the quality of your sleep.
This means you may have a far more restful sleep, and feel more energised and alert when you wake up!
