Hot Stone – massage therapy with heated basalt stones to release tension and relax muscles
Hot stone is a specialty massage that uses hot stones placed on the specific body part to relax muscles, release stress, improve circulation and strengthen metabolism. Here the massage specialist uses flat surfaced, smooth and warm basalt stones to relieve aching muscles and heal the overall body. The stones are placed on your spine, in your palms, on your legs or between the toes to promote deeper muscle relaxation. The expert therapist uses various techniques like long strokes, kneading, tapping and circular motions to let the client experience the best benefits of this massage.
How does the hot stone therapy work?
Here, the therapy practitioners first sanitize and heat the basalt stones professionally in the precise temperature range which is usually between 120 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Then the therapists warm up your body with traditional Swedish massage, and then the hot stones are positioned on key acupressure body parts including the spine, abdomen, hands, palms, feet, and legs. These stones warm and relax your body, release toxins and relieve pain. These stones are also helpful in expanding blood vessels for improved circulation. Other than that, these have a sedative effect on the receiver’s body resulting in tension and anxiety reduction, relieving chronic pain, and inducing deeper sense of relaxation.
