Spring 2008: Massage: The Hot Stone Treatment

Comments Off on Spring 2008: Massage: The Hot Stone Treatment

Hot Stone Massage
To relax and rejuvenate body and mind

In this comforting and healing massage, which can last anywhere from one to one and a half hours, stones of various sizes and weights are used within the therapist’s hands to massages the client and can be combined with Swedish, deep tissue massage, injury treatment, Reiki or other forms of bodywork. The use of heated oils makes this modality a relaxing spa-like treatment. The penetrating heat of the stones begins to elicit deep relaxation almost immediately, soothing the nervous system and melting the effects of stress.
The demands for hot stone massages are increasing due to the added benefit of feeling a deeper massage from the stones without the residual soreness left over from a manual type massage.

*It is very important that you tell your therapist if the temperature of the stones is uncomfortable, as they can modify the treatment to apply warm stones, as opposed to hot ones.
