Hot stones massage has similar benefits to that of Swedish Massage, however with added heat during the treatment, the after effects of the massage are improved through increased blood circulation and fresh oxygen to the area being worked on. Heated stones are held in the therapists hands and used around the body to stimulate certain areas. The heat held within the stones soothes and encourages the rejuvenation of the entire body and is very good for promoting relaxation as well as reducing muscle tension, encouraging skin revitalisation and improving sleep.
What to Expect
Your therapist will take a full history of previous and current injuries and any relevant medical information and medication you are taking at the moment. The stones will have been prepared before your appointment in the heating unit and the therapist will usually give you a couple of minutes to get changed and ready for your treatment. The therapist will then return and guide you from there.
