5 Reasons to Try a Hot Stone Massage
A hot stone massage is one the finest spa treatments to help you relax and unwind. The little stresses of everyday life can all build up, leaving you tenser and more strained than you might realize. Booking yourself in for a professional hot stone massage may be just what you need to feel rejuvenated.
During this treatment, smooth heated stones are placed on various areas of the body, usually the spine, stomach, chest, feet and even the palms. Long strokes, tapping and kneading may all be used during the treatment.
A hot stone massage feels absolutely incredible when performed by an experienced therapist, but what benefits does it offer?
Ease tension and pain in your muscles
The heat emanating from the stones helps to boost blood flow into treated areas, easing muscular tension and pain. This can be a significant relief if you have strains related to vigorous exercise or sports.
Hot stone massages may improve your range of motion and flexibility too.
Reduce feelings of anxiety and stress
The heated stones and therapeutic touch of your therapist’s expert hands are ideal for reducing anxious and stressful feelings.
You will be able to simply lie still, allow the heat to warm key parts of your body and focus on the positive sensations flowing through you. After an effective hot stone massage, you should feel totally revitalized and relaxed.
Promote better sleep
Hot stone massage can encourage better sleep, whether you have a sleep disorder or just want to feel more rested in the morning. The treatment may help you fall into a deeper sleep more quickly than you’re used to.
As a result, you should feel more energized and refreshed. This can set you up in a better mood for the day ahead.
Help to relieve autoimmune symptoms
If you suffer from fibromyalgia or other autoimmune-related difficulties, a hot stone massage offers natural relief.
Fibromyalgia is a rheumatic condition causing pain and stiffness in the muscles and skeleton. Certain areas of the body will feel tender, and the ongoing discomfort can have a major negative impact on everyday life.
After a hot stone massage, you should feel more relaxed and enjoy a reduction in pain, particularly if you have a long treatment session. Inform your therapist of your condition so they can make the massage as effective for you as possible.
Strengthen the immune system
A hot stone massage may help to boost your immune system, by improving your blood circulation and taking your stress levels down.
The stronger your immune system, the better you should be able to fight off potential viruses like the common cold and flu.
