What is Hot Stone Massage?
Hot Stone massage is a more effective way to give a massage treatment using hot stones. One stroke with a hot stone is worth 5 with the hand, so the treatment is more powerful because it enables deeper penetration to break down the knots that are found in muscles. The therapeutic heat is deep and soothing making for a luxurious and relaxing treatment. This is my best treatment yet and the hot stones take massage to the next level. The treatment is 1 hour and 15 minutes of pure bliss.
What stones are used in a Hot Stone Massage?
The hot stones used in a hot stone massage treatment are basalt stones because they retain heat & have been handpicked & naturally shaped & smoothed to give a deep & relaxing pampering treatment. Basalt stones are a common volcanic rock formed from the rapid cooling of lava as it touches the earth this is why it is very hard & holds heat making it perfect for a treatment.
The Benefits of Hot Stones
The hot stones increase circulation, open up the muscles for a deeper more powerful treatment. They have a naturally grounding effect and the warmth is soothing & relaxing. Cold stones can also be used over areas of inflammation for a cooling effect. Overall the experience takes massage to the next level because it helps in the same way massage does but faster with more powerful results in helping managing these conditions:
- Migraine & tension headaches
- Constipation & digestive disorders
- Muscle aches, back pain & sports injuries
