What is a Hot Stone Massage?
The Hot Stone Massage is a great way to reduce stress and anxiety, to promote deeper relaxation, and ease pain and muscle tension.
This natural therapy in which warmed stones are positioned on parts of your body are to maximize the therapeutic benefit of massage.
The stones used are typically river rocks or other very smooth-surfaced stones made of basalt. These stones are heated in sanitizing water before use. The high iron content in basalt helps the stones retain heat during the massage and allows to manipulate a deeper layer of the muscles structure to enhance the body release.
A Hot Stone Massage is beneficial on both physical and psychological levels. Always check with your doctor before getting a hot stone massage; individuals with certain conditions--including pregnant women and people with high blood pressure, diabetics, heart disease, varicose veins, migraines, rheumatoid arthritis are advised to avoid this type of therapy.
