Hot stone massage is a firm favourite, particularly for clients with real aches and pains. This massage helps your anxieties melt away while your muscles are infused with heat. Hot stone massage is proven to therapeutically treat and loosen tension, ease muscle pain and increase circulation. Benefits of Hot Stone Massage What are the benefits of a hot stone massage? As massage therapists we can achieve a deeper, more therapeutic massage as the heat from each stone penetrates deeper into the muscle, with each stroke being equivalent to around five strokes of a hand. Each stone is placed on key areas of the body to help with energy flow. As muscles relax they release toxins, so we always recommend drinking plenty of water after a hot stone massage to flush these out and leave your body detoxified. The hot stones also encourage blood flow, helping reduce stress, promote relaxation and relieve chronic pain from diseases such as arthritis. The technique is also beneficial for the likes of soft tissue injuries as it aids the healing process by bringing more oxygenated blood to the affected areas. With stress being a large component of many illnesses and something that affects many of us, it is important to take time out and relax. A hot stone massage not only gives you that time but is wonderfully healing for both body and mind.
