If you are looking for a massage that will melt away tension and ease muscle stiffness, a Hot Stone Massage may be the perfect choice for you. This unique form of massage therapy uses smooth, heated stones to help loosen tight muscles and improve circulation. In addition, Hot Stone Massage can boost your metabolism and promote deeper muscle relaxation.
Your therapist will begin the massage with using light pressure as they work the heated stones over your body. The heat from the stones penetrates your muscles, providing both deep relaxation and relief from muscle tension. As the therapist moves the stones along your body, they may also use other massage techniques such as Swedish Massage or Shiatsu to relieve tension further.
During this massage, your therapist will use Hot Stones to warm up tight muscles while working on pressure points and problematic areas. The heat from the stones will help the therapist access deeper levels of tissue and effectively reduce pain and tension.
After your massage, you can expect to experience increased relaxation and a reduction in stress.
The therapist will use a variety of techniques during the massage. these may include:
The therapist will knead the muscles with their hands. This technique can help to release tension and increase blood flow to the muscles.
The therapist will use pressure to work the muscles. This technique can help to relax the muscles and improve circulation.
The therapist will use their thumbs or fingers to apply pressure to the muscles. This technique can help to release tension in the muscles and improve joint mobility.
