Hot stone massage involves the application of heated volcanic stones of varying sizes to key points on the body, giving a deep massage and creating sensations of comfort and warmth.
The warm stones expand the blood vessels, pushing blood and unwanted waste materials through the body. This has a sedative effect on the nervous system.
The massage begins by applying oil to the body, which allows the hot stones to glide smoothly along the muscles. After the hot stones have relaxed the muscles, the massage therapist may put down the stones and use his or her hands to directly massage the tissue.
Many people find the warmth of the hot stones to be comforting and great for relaxation.
Hot stone massage is excellent for people who tend to feel chilly.
Hot stone massage is great for people who have muscle tension but prefer a lighter massage, as the heat relaxes muscles, allowing the therapist to work the muscles without using deep pressure.
Hot stone massage is also great for people who want deep tissue work as the stones decrease the time it takes to warm the tissue and allow for increased depth in pressure more quickly.
People also get hot stone massage for a variety of health conditions:
- Back pain and aches
- Poor circulation
- Osteoarthritis and arthritis pain
- Stress, anxiety and tension
