What Is Hot Stone Massage?
The idea of using hot stones for massage goes back to ancient cultures in China, India, Hawaii and in Native American society. Stones were taken from rivers and heated or cooled to provide relief for body aches and muscle problems. The idea has been revived today, providing a method that effectively relieves muscle strain and fatigue, as well as offering a deeply relaxing experience that helps to relieve common tension. The massage therapist that uses hot stones must receive special training on the techniques, which are growing in popularity because of its rejuvenating effects.
What Happens During Hot Stone Massage Therapy?
During a hot stone massage, the therapists may have the stones in their hands as they use Swedish massage techniques, such as long strokes, circular motions, kneading, tapping or vibration. The therapist may also place the warm stones on certain points of the body, allowing the warmth and energy to penetrate through the skin. The result is a sense of profound relaxation and physical comfort.
