Modern life can present us with a seemingly never-ending series of obstacles and challenges, and that often means that we’re stressed in ways that previous generations never dreamed possible. Unfortunately, all that stress can create problems that are sometimes difficult to address. One way to deal with all that stress and anxiety is to rely on the healing and restorative power of massage. And when it comes to massage therapy, there are few options more effective against stress than a hot stone massage!
Hot stone massage is a unique massage therapy that can provide unparalleled relaxation and stress-relief for those who receive it. It combines manual manipulation of muscle tissue with heated stones, enabling the therapist to impact the body’s tissues in ways that are otherwise difficult to achieve. The stones used for this massage technique are specifically selected for their heat retention properties. Stones like basalt are a popular choice used by many therapists.
These stones are warmed up prior to application, and can then be placed on various areas of the body like the face, stomach, back, or extremities. In some instances, therapists even hold the stones and use them to massage their clients – achieving greater deep muscle impact and maximizing the relaxation effect.
The therapist also uses a variety of different massage strokes during the therapy, to relieve tired and sore muscles, alleviate tension, and increase flexibility. Clients who receive this therapy enjoy substantial benefits that can include:
- Pain relief. Patients suffering from autoimmune disorders or conditions like fibromyalgia report significant pain relief from hot stone massage. This therapy has also aided patients who suffered from muscle injuries, reduced range of motion, and other physical difficulties.
- Improved mobility. Tension, pain, and stress can impact the body in many negative ways – and can sometimes hinder mobility. Hot stone massage can help to alleviate those problems, relax the muscles, and make it more comfortable for you to move around.
- Improved sleep patterns. Stress can impact sleep, and that can lead to a whole host of ailments. This massage technique reduces stress in ways that can positively impact your sleep patterns. You’ll not only feel more relaxed when your massage is done, but those benefits may carry on and help you to enjoy more restful sleep as well.
