Hot Stone Therapy: Melt Away Stress and Tension
At Optimized Body & Mind, we invite you to experience the unparalleled relaxation and tension relief offered by our Hot Stone Therapy. This unique massage technique harnesses the soothing power of heated volcanic stones, providing you with a profoundly rejuvenating experience that melts away stress and muscle tension.
Discover the Benefits of Hot Stone Therapy?
Hot stone massage is a type of massage therapy that uses smooth, heated volcanic stones placed strategically on specific areas of your body. These stones are typically made of basalt, a volcanic rock known for its heat retention properties. The stones are heated to a temperature range of 130 to 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
During the massage, the therapist may place these hot stones along various parts of your body, including your spine, stomach, chest, face, palms, and feet. They then incorporate Swedish massage techniques such as long strokes, circular movements, vibration, tapping, and kneading while using the heated stones. This combination helps to relieve muscle tension, reduce pain, and promote relaxation.
Sometimes, cold stones may be used in addition to the hot stones. Cold stones can help calm engorged blood vessels and soothe the skin following the hot stone treatment.
The Six Benefits of Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage offers a range of benefits, making it a sought-after therapy for various conditions:

Reduces Stress and Anxiety: Massage therapy is recognized for its stress-relieving effects. Studies have shown that even a short massage session can improve cardiovascular responses, reducing stress significantly.
