Hot stone massage is a type of massage treatment which uses heated stones made of basalt. Basalt is a kind of volcanic rock which is good at absorbing heat. Hot stones were used as a method of therapy by the Native Americans and we can find that this massage has its ancestry rooted there. The therapists who specialize in doing hot stone massages have to go through extensive training. Most spas offer this treatment but even a great masseuse can sometimes not be good at this sort of massage. At Armonia Spa, we have the most experienced therapists who will give you a perfect treatment.
In the massage, the stone is sanitized first and then heated in water measuring 120 to 250 degrees. The stones are then placed on the spine of the client but later on different parts of the body. This includes the stomach, chest, face, palms and even the feet and toes. Hot stone massage greatly helps those people who have symptoms for conditions like autoimmune disorders. The treatment has also found to reduce the pain and increase mobility of patients who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis. This method of massage is great for the heart and it reduces stress and anxiety in the elderly. Muscles are targeted during the process and when they are relaxed, it makes it easier for the person to move. The massage lasts for approximately 75 minutes.
Most times, we become tense or are prone to spasms causing pain and discomfort. Hot stone massage reduces the inflammation and tension in these skeletal muscles and has been proven to decrease soreness. One of the major problems that people of all ages face is the lack of sleep. Stress, busy schedules, and insomnia cause a person to get less than 7 hours sleep a night. The treatment involving hot stones eliminates these problems and lets the client have a good night’s sleep. It is necessary to note that this style of massage is not recommended for you if you have diabetes or high blood pressure.
