Relax Your Mind, Body & Soul With Hot Stone Massage
Have you wondered, like many others, what the benefits of using hot stones in a massage are? You might know, that in a hot stone massage, the massage therapist places warmed stones on your body as an addition to a regular therapeutic massage. However, there is so much more to this centuries-old practice, and here are a few things you might not know about hot stone massage:
- Typically the rocks used are basalt stones, which have an exceptionally high iron content, allowing them to retain heat for much longer than a typical stone.These stones are very smooth and feel wonderful on the skin.
- The stones are strategically placed on trigger points along the body. These areas may include: hands, between toes, back, neck & face. Certain spots are considered to be energy centers of the body known as chakras.
- By placing hot stones along the tense spots on the body your muscles will loosen and relax. Essentially, the warm stones allow your therapist to soothe tense areas more easily and effectively without needing to apply excessive pressure during the massage.
- Many clients enjoy hot stone massage for both physical and psychological benefits. Use of hot stones are can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress, and promote deep relaxation.
