Hot Stone Massage

$149.95 USD
A hot stone massage is a type of massage therapy. It's used to help you relax and ease tense muscles and damaged soft tissues throughout your body. During a hot stone massage, smooth, flat, heated stones are placed on specific parts of your body.

Comfort and Relax: Think of the pleasure of being made warm by a fireside on a chilly day, and you’ll understand why the heat of the hot stones is so comforting and relaxing. It’s like being deeply embraced, right into your soul. It just feels like you’re ‘home.’

Heat Aids Depth: With hot stones, one of the significant benefits is that the heat from the stones penetrates your body, bringing many of the benefits of massage to a deeper level. It allows intense muscle relaxation, enabling the massage therapist to work very deeply without the pressure they would need to apply in a deep tissue massage.

Relief from Tension and Pain: Heat is a well-known natural pain reliever. If tension is behind an ache or pain, heat can be enormously effective at releasing the tension and thus easing the pain. This is believed to be because when heat is applied to an area, the blood flow to that region increases. As a result, it can help alleviate spasms and enable a joint or muscles to be gently flexed and regain movement and mobility.

Relief from Stress and Anxiety: Massage, including hot stone massage, has been scientifically proven to reduce stress and anxiety. It’s fascinating to learn why this is. Lots of processes are stimulated by massage. Endorphins and other feel-good hormones are released, which reduce stress and anxiety. At the same time, the ‘stress’ hormones, such as norepinephrine and cortisol, are lowered.

Aids Sleep: One of the enormous benefits of having a hot stone massage at home is that it will help ease you into deeper restful, and restorative sleep. Indeed, one study has shown that massage is particularly beneficial for relieving insomnia in postmenopausal women. Of course, more research needs to be done on the benefits of hot stone massage and sleep, but it certainly seems to promote good sleep in everyone we know!

Immune Boosting: Many techniques used in a Swedish massage are also used in hot stone massage. Swedish massage has positively impacted your immune system, even after just one session. Knowing that you can boost your immunity by being pampered and massaged is wonderful!

Managing Chronic Pain: For chronic pain conditions, such as Fibromyalgia, massage has been shown to bring tangible positive effects. The science shows that this is due to the lower levels of substance P, which is how the body partly transmits pain signals. Other research has shown that people with painful Rheumatoid Arthritis have also experienced less pain.

Cancer Management: Swedish massage, incorporated into hot stone massage, has been shown to help cancer patients manage the symptoms of their disease. From less nausea and depression to reduced pain and fatigue, it would appear that a caring massage can help individuals to alleviate some of their cancer symptoms.

Draw Out Toxins: Many practitioners of hot stone massage believe that one of the real benefits of this type of massage is its ability to draw toxins to the skin's surface and eliminate them through the body’s natural sweating process. This leads to a wonderful radiant glow.

Self-healing: Whether it’s due to the balance of energy flow, or some other lesser understood process in the body and mind, a hot stone massage can restore balance, and many feel it helps with self-healing.
