Hot Stone Massage or Hot Stone Therapy
Hot Stone Massage is a deeply relaxing treatment, which combines holistic massage with the use of water-heated smooth basalt stones &/or cold stones to release physical tension, improve circulation and flush toxins from the body.
Using the contrast of hot and cold stones stimulates the blood vessels to dilate in the tissues, perfusing them with fresh blood & nutrients, which are essential for healing to occur. Also, this encourages increased drainage from the tissues of the waste products of metabolism, therefore aiding in the reduction of inflammation and toxic load on the tissues.
Using the hot stones relaxes the muscles and connective tissues, so reduces tension on the joints. This effect also allows for deeper massage manipulation of the soft tissues and eliminates any therapeutic discomfort that may occur from the remedial massage alone. This approach is usually found to be deeply relaxing and very comforting.
With the vascular stimulation of blood supply - hot stone massage assists every cell in the body to receive more oxygen and nutrients while increasing blood and lymphatic drainage to help the elimination of toxins.
The cold stones help to reduce inflammation, refresh, invigorate and decongest. They stimulate the nervous system and when used with the hot stones, they create a cleansing effect in the body.
Other treatment modalities can be incorporated into the treatment i.e. crystals or Reiki, to help restore harmony, balance & vitality, depending on the therapist and of course the clients preferences.

* Stress & Stress Related Problems
