hot stone massage in york

A LITTLE HISTORY

The use of hot stone massage to relieve pains and stress is not a new massage therapy. It has its existence since 1500 B.C, during which the Native Americans and Europeans used it.

As the name implies, hot stone massage involves the use of water treated basalt stones for doing the massage. Warm stones are placed over specific parts of the body depending on the results we want to achieve. This sort of massage is said to evoke the inherent kundalini energy (the vital energy that runs through our spine and feeds the rest of the body elements).

Beforehand, the muscles should be pre-treated for better response with a manual massage done with specific oils. Cool stones may also be used alternatively, specially if there are any muscle injuries or inflammation.

 

BENEFITS

As with the other massage therapies, hot stone massage is associated with many benefits, only that it is 10 times more powerful than conventional massages!

  • Vasodilation occurs increasing blood flow around the body flushing out waste products and cleansing internal organs.
  • Circulation is improved, muscles have an increased blood and oxygen and other nutrients supply.
  • Stimulates microcirculation due to the general increase in circulation.
  • Lymphatic function increases circulation and cell function promoting the tissue repair.
  • The heat relieves pain in muscles and joints. VERY GOOD FOR ARTHRITIS.
  • Tension in connective tissue is decreased.
  • One stroke with a hot stone  is equal to ten normal massage strokes, so the treatment is said to be ten times deeper and the results are said to last ten times longer than traditional techniques.
  • Fights the cold winter by warming up all the cells.
  • Deep relaxation – mentally and physically.
  • Stress is reduced, relieving mental and physical fatigue.

 

In the view of the above benefits, hot stone massage is used as a therapy to relieve certain health problems such as arthritis, anxiety, stress, pain, depression, insomnia, problems related to blood circulation, etc. Not recommended on varicose veins.
