About Hot Stone Massage
This type of massage therapy involves heat distributed through stones. The smooth, heated stones are placed on trouble areas by the massage therapist, and then specific points on your body are massaged with the stones.
Using a variety of massage techniques, the stones localize the heat and add pressure needed to warm and relax your muscles at the same time. This also allows the massage therapist to gain deeper pressure in areas where you feel discomfort.
Hot stone massage is unlike any other type of massage because it includes heated stones. Typically, the stones are smooth and retain a good amount of heat, and thus, they include Basalt river rocks and other water types.
How to Prepare for Hot Stone Massage?
The night before your massage, prepare your skin with a gentle wash and a body scrub treatment if you desire. Then pat your skin with a clean dry towel and sleep in a breathable fabric like cotton. You may also decide to tone your body with a toner and follow with a light moisturizer.
What to Expect?
The most popular benefits of hot stone massage include the feeling of deep relaxation. The feelings of calm are known to reach into other areas of health and may aid in immunity, flexibility, overall aches and pains, sleep, anxiety, depression, and more. You may also notice a sense of energy and vitality due to the release of tension and toxins over the days that follow your appointment.
