1. Relieve Muscle Tension
During a hot stone massage, a licensed massage therapist places heated stones on your body to complement traditional massage techniques. The warmth of the smooth, ocean-washed stones can relieve muscle tension and pain to help prevent chronic discomfort.
Heat can soothe pain by opening up the blood vessels and bringing more blood flow to the area where it’s applied. The massage therapist will work to reduce painful muscle spasms and tightness in the neck, lower back and hamstrings by applying pressure to these areas.
2. Reduce Stress
Stress management is crucial to help ease physical tension and feelings of depression. It’s also important when trying to improve concentration and relationships with loved ones. In a stress-free environment, communicating with others becomes easier and less hostile.
Our Hot Stone Massage can provide the intense relaxation you need to lower your heart rate and calm your mind, which allows for better focus.
If you are consistently stressed, your muscles may become naturally tight. Through the use of gentle hands and hot stones, this massage method can keep you relaxed and stress-free.
3. Promote Sleep
A good night’s sleep can improve memory, productivity and performance. During a massage, the hot stones deeply enhance the relaxation response and balance energy flow. This can help decrease anxiety, which can improve overall sleep quality.
In addition, a hot stone massage can increase melatonin production in the body. Melatonin is a hormone that helps your brain know when it’s time to sleep.
The heat from the stones is also effective for promoting sleep. The warmth helps your blood pressure drop, causing sleepiness!
