Encourages Deep Relaxation
Probably one of the best reasons to get a hot stone massage is because it encourages deep relaxation. For most people, stress is something they must try to manage daily. Hot stone therapy combines heat, soothing stones, and a massage therapist’s healing touch to reduce muscle tension and encourage deep relaxation. The gentle gliding strokes combined with the heat of the rocks soothes and comforts the mind and body, allowing the person receiving the massage to fall into a deep state of relaxation, which can help them manage stress, anxiety, and depression.
Relieves Chronic Pain
Hot stone massage offers a sedative effect that provides chronic pain relief for a number of pains and health conditions. For instance, hot stone massage is highly beneficial for those who suffer from fibromyalgia, sciatica and other neuropathies, chronic neck and lower back pain, and pain in the hands and feet. The heat gently soothes the muscles, allowing them to loosen, which decreases stiffness, tension, and pain.
The heat from the stones combined with the friction of massage strokes warms up the blood vessels, allowing them to open and expand. As the blood vessels dilate, circulation and blood flow increases, allowing the circulatory system to more effectively remove toxins from the muscles and soft tissues that contribute to pain and discomfort, replenishing these tissues with oxygen and nutrients, which benefits other systems and organs in the body.
