Health Benefits of Hot Stone Massage Therapy

We all know that life is full of challenges and stress. Work, children, and relationships are just some of the many causes of tension in our lives. When searching for a way to get a long-term relief, hot stone massage therapy could be an excellent option. Round, smooth, heated, and oiled stones are applied over your back to reduce your muscle tension, stress, and fatigue. In this article, we will mention some of the numerous benefits of the hot stone body work:

  • Muscle relaxation.

    The heat from the stones helps your muscles loosen up and relax through a well-performed manipulation of the deep tissues.

  • Pain relief.

    Basically, all types of massages aim to eliminate your back, neck, and shoulders’ pain. However, if you take this kind of body work on a regular basis, you will notice greater relief of your tensed muscles, stiffed joints, and injuries. Hot stones allow the masseuse to penetrate deeper under your skin, so you may be surprised that actually this massage makes you feel better and more relaxed than deep tissue or Swedish body procedure, for instance. Manipulation of your muscles can significantly reduce their spasms and lead to overall comfort.

  • Improved circulation.

    In general, specialists hot stones on particular points of your body before starting the actual massage. As heat penetrates deep into your tissues, it allows blood vessels to open, and this way, they improve blood circulation. It delivers more oxygen to the muscles which leads to easing the pain.

  • Quick toxins release.

    Due to enhanced blood circulation, waste products in your body start to move and release faster. This is why people are advised to drink a lot of water after sessions to help flush all those unhealthy toxins away from the body.

  • Better and deeper sleep.

    As the hot stone body work causes relaxation of the whole body, you also get a chance to fall asleep faster and have a better sleep.

  • Improved health conditions.

    This type of therapy is recommended to patients suffering from Arthritis, Fibromylagia, Hypertension, and other skeletal problems.
