A wonderfully relaxing and warming treatment which brings comfort and tranquility. Hot Stone Massage uses stones for work on the body and also for placement under and on the body during treatment.
This particular treatment aims to create balance and harmony on all levels. Hot Stone Massage uses deep, penetrating massage techniques and highly effective energy work. It effects chemical, physical & spiritual healing within the mind, body and spirit.
La Stone therapy goes beyond the physical experience of typical massage and enters deeper dimensions of relaxation, health & well being, creating a positive approach to body, mind, spirit philosophy.
The stones have been around as long as earth has. The stones that are used include the basalt stones and polished and hardened lava stones.
Benefits of Stone Massage
- Increases circulation, floods the body with oxygenated blood.
- Increases metabolism.
- Increase lymph function, helps to rid the body of toxins.
- Reduces muscle spasm.
- Relaxes the mind and brings a sense of calm.
I sometimes use an occasional hot stone to help warm a client’s muscle before a deep tissue massage or in combination with an Aromatherapy treatment to bring an even deeper sense of relaxation.
