Hot Stone Massage

Stone massage therapy has been used in many different cultures for many years. Stones from river beds are warmed in hot water and then placed on the body and arranged along the energy centres of the body. Hot stone massage helps to relax the muscles and reduce pain or discomfort, boosting a healing process. The heat of the stones helps muscles release more quickly than in traditional massage.

How Does It Work?

The hot stones are made of basalt, a type of rock that is rich in iron, so they retain heat. The stones are immersed in water and heated in an electric heating device until they are within a certain temperature range.

The stones are placed at specific points on the back, in the palms of the hand, or between the toes. The heat warms and relaxes the muscles, which allows me to apply deeper pressure, if desired.

Health Benefits From Treatment

Hot Stone Massage has proven to be beneficial in helping people in the following ways:

  • Deep relaxation, the warmth relaxes both physically and mentally
  • The heat from the stones is transferred to the body by conduction and it may reach up to 3cm into the muscle
  • Stress is reduced, relieving mental and physical fatigue
  • Circulation is improved and muscles have an increased blood supply, improving function
  • Toxins and waste are eliminated more quickly
  • The warmth can relieve pain in muscles and joints
  • Tension in connective tissue is decreased
  • There is a deep comfort of receiving warmth on the body
