Bodywork 101 ~Hot Stone Massage
A Hot Stone Massage is an ideal way to warm your bones in this nippy weather! These basalt stones are smoothed from year of water erosion from a stream or ocean.
These stones are heated to help relax your muscles and and encourage blood flow to the area being massaged. Your therapist will either lay the stones on your back and/or use them to massage your muscles. There are certain points on our body that harbor a large amount of energy, your therapist could place the stones in these areas for more enrage flow. Hot stone massage is deeply relaxing, you will get lost in your state of Bliss!
The warmth of the hot stones improves:
- Blood circulation
- Calms the nervous system
- Back pain and aches
- Poor circulation
- Stress, anxiety and tension
Considerations when booking a Hot Stone: If you have diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, or are on medication that thins your blood. You shouldn’t get a hot stone massage if you are pregnant or have a sunburn. You also may want to reconsider if you are menopausal, as it may trigger a hot flash.
