What's Hot Stone Massage?
The hot stone massage is also an unconventional kind of bodywork and alternative medicine therapy involving the positioning of several heated or even cold stones on your body with the goal of treatment, pain relief and stress reduction. The use of heated stones dates back to ancient times when man had no other means of curing wounds. Although stones can be used on any region of the body, men and women usually place heated stones in certain parts of their bodies such as the neck, shoulders, hands, legs, feet, hips, feet and buttocks. Some stones may even be warmed up to over 500 degrees F. This is thought to be the hottest temperature a rock can be set on. The stones are placed over areas that are swollen or painful and massaged slowly until the regions are relaxed and warm.
Hot stone massages provide temporary relief from pain, swelling, stiffness and swelling. People who regularly get massages enjoy greater blood flow, better digestion, a calmer state of mind, relief from anxiety and a healthier lifestyle. Aromatherapy oils and essential oils are used during hot rock massages to supply a soothing sensation. Aromatherapy is particularly well known in Europe where it's often known as foot massage. It's thought that these treatments provide the maximum benefit to individuals who suffer with arthritis and joint problems.
