Use the calming warmth of hot stone massage to turn your relaxation massage up a notch. The added heat melts muscle tension and enhances deep relaxation. We can’t truly explain the powerful impact this deepened relaxation will have on your overall well-being. It’s benefits are cascading, and subtle. We can tell you the overwhelming feedback is that it feels good. Really really good. Maybe it’s one of those things you need to experience first hand.
Your therapist will use a combination of stone placements, massaging with the heated stones, and massaging with their hands to warm up your muscles, relax your mind, and ease your tension. With the table warmer on and a touch of aromatherapy oil, you will be transported on a 90-minute mini-vacation.
The heat from the stones can also enhance the benefits of a therapeutic massage. Adding heat, especially moist heat, helps relax tight muscle fibers, ease stiffness, and reduce pain. If you have muscles that tend to stay tight and sore, the warm stones can complement what your massage therapist does with their hands.
Typically, the therapist will use the stones in a more focused and applied manner during a therapeutic session. You can expect them to alternate between using the stones and hands on your problem area(s). Anyone who uses a heating pad for their pain problem can benefit from this type of work.
