Relax with hot stone massage

In the world of massage there seems to be an endless amount of options. There’s shiatsu, deep tissue, Swedish massage, sports massage, the list goes on. One type of massage that doesn’t get enough attention is a hot stone massage. The hot stone massage takes relaxation to the next level. Let’s take a look at why.

What is Hot Stone Massage?

A hot stone massage is a form of massage that uses hot stones applied to key areas and tight muscles. This direct application of gentle heat promotes deep relaxation and allows the therapist to get all the way down to the deep muscle layers that are normally not accessible due to tense muscles on the surface. This is how it takes relaxation to the next level.

Who Would It Benefit Most?

Anyone will benefit from a hot stone massage, but those with sore overworked muscles and chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis may benefit the most. Studies have shown improved sleep and mood and less pain in those with these disorders who received a hot stone massage.

Are There Benefits Beyond Relaxation?

In addition to relieving muscle pain and tension, a hot stone massage may also boost your mood and improve your sleep. It can also increase circulation and reduce muscle spasms. Some studies suggest that massage may have a positive impact on immunity and help lower blood pressure.
