Hot stone massage uses stones to relax muscles, improve circulation and relieve stress.
Hot stone massage involves the application of smooth, water-heated stones of varying sizes to key points on the body, giving a deep penetrating massage and creating sensations of comfort and warmth. This direct heat relaxes muscles, improves circulation and calms the nervous system.
In some cases cold stones can also be used to help muscular injury and inflammation. Using cold stones stimulates the nervous system, increasing the lymph flow of waste materials around the body.
Hot stone massage helps to improve circulation and can help reduce stress, anxiety, tension and depression.
It can also help in the treatment of a range of problems, including muscular aches and pains, rheumatic and arthritic conditions, Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia, back pain, and insomnia.
