Relaxation Warm Stone Massage

What is warm stone massage?

Imagine laying on a massage table, letting your stress and anxieties melt away as your muscles are therapeutically massaged with basalt hot stones. A regular deep tissue massage is incredibly relaxing, but the addition of hot stones makes hot stone massage therapy an increasingly popular.

I like to, as with all my treatments, use a combination of massage techniques together with my hot stone massage. The premise behind this is that the direct heat of the stones relaxes soft tissue and deeper muscle layers. Combining hot stone protocols with a full body massage provides a very healing and effective experience.

The hot stones also expand blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body. The hot stones have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.

Benefits of Hot Stone

  • Provides relief from pain associated with fibromyalgia, arthritis, frozen shoulder and other chronic conditions
  • Decreases pain and muscle spasms
  • Reduces chronic stress and tension
  • Increases flexibility in joints, aiding in easier mobility and movement
  • Relieves pain and tension created by strained and contracted muscles

The stones used for a hot stone massage are usually basalt stones which are chalky grey in colour but turn dark once oil is applied to them. The stones are heated to 130 degrees F. and then left to stand until the are at just the right lovely warm soothing temperature. The stones are then placed strategically along the spine. I will then gently rub the stone into muscles and tissues, the firmness of the stone coupled with the heat enhance the therapeutic benefits of the massage.
