The hot stone massage is a speciality spa style treatment that involves using flat, smooth, heated stones placed on specific areas of your body as an extension of the hands of the therapists. The stones warm and relax your muscles, allowing deeper pressure to be applied during your massage. Here are just a few reasons why you should be booking a hot stone massage!
Increase Blood Flow
Arguably the best reason to undergo a hot stone massage is that it improves blood flow to the muscles which further reduces pain, soreness, and tension. Just placing the stones on the different targeted body parts, such as the spine, back, this will open the blood vessels and increase blood circulation within the body. It is a little wonder that makes this form of massage so popular.
In addition to the improved blood circulation, this form of therapy can also reduce stress and anxiety. Just a ten-minute hot stone massage can reduce stress levels and anxiety considerably that you can rest and relax better from your exhaustive daily routine.
It may seem a little strange at first that hot stones can improve immune system. However, by reducing stress levels and improving blood circulation, the immune system can function at a higher rate of efficiency. For those who have experienced this form of massage, it provides a better, stronger immune system that helps you fight off any potential illnesses and diseases.
For people who are suffering from a sleep disorder, or widely known as insomnia, a hot stone massage will be an ideal alternative solution. This treatment helps the recipients to fall asleep faster and sleep in a deeper and more relaxed state. Thanks to the restorative sleep, people usually wake up refreshed and more energetic after undergoing this special spa treatment.
Works to Relieve Autoimmune Symptoms
Surprisingly, a hot stone massage offers a natural solution for those who suffer from autoimmune disorders such as fibromyalgia. This means that those who have enjoyed a 30-minute hot stone massage can sleep better, have fewer instances of pain, and even fewer trigger points. Whilst it is not a cure for fibromyalgia, regular hot stone massage treatments provide some form of relief to those who suffer from this disorder.
With all these healing qualities provided by the hot stone massage, my only question is... have you booked yet?
