Hot Stone Massage
A Hot Stone Massage is one of the most relaxing forms of massage that Sky Diamond offers. Stones that are high in mineral content are warmed and used to massage the muscles. The heat releases tension and allows the muscles to relax and the minerals in the stones are absorbed which help to get rid of toxins stored in the muscle tissue.
Benefits of Hot Stone Massage
HOT STONE MASSAGES HELP WITH PAIN MANAGEMENT
Soft tissue manipulation is believed to reduce pain by increasing blood flow and flushing toxins from the muscle.
HOT STONE MASSAGES DECREASE BLOOD PRESSURE
According to studies, minerals absorbed by muscle tissue during Hot Stone Massages can decrease blood pressure in those with hypertension.
HOT STONE MASSAGES INCREASE IMMUNITY STRENGTH
Minerals absorbed by muscle tissue during a Hot Stone Massage can also help eliminate toxins and strengthen the immune system.
What Happens During A Hot Stone Massage
First, warmed mineral stones are placed along the spine. As the stones sit, the heat will start to relax your muscles and dissipate any tension. As the stones sit along your back, the minerals will be absorbed through the skin which will help begin flushing toxins from muscle tissue.
Next, your Massage Therapist will begin to use the hot stones to massage the muscle tissue along your back, applying minor amounts of pressure. The stones help soothe sore muscles and release stored tension.
