Hot Stone massage is the perfect way to relax and re-balance. Benefit from the knowledge and techniques that have been passed down through the generations for over 5000 years.
Hot Stone therapy is a unique style of massage where smooth, heated black stones are used on the body to gently and deeply penetrate the muscles, softening the tissues and release tension. Using the radiant heat of the stones, pressure points and problem areas are treated extremely effectively but in a very relaxing and non invasive manner. Cold stones are also selectively applied during the session, aiding the treatment of injuries by reducing muscle inflammation. Alternating the use of both hot and cold stones to Yin-Yang sides of the body increases the circulatory response from all systems and helps restore balance.
Hot Stones bring oxygenated blood to an area, increasing lymph flow and metabolism. Conversely, cold stones push away unwanted congestion/blockages and inflammation which assists with detoxifying the body.
On a mental level the continuing application of hot and cold stones to the body, result in a deeper state of relaxation with profound feelings of balance and serenity. Hot stones may either be placed on the body or used as an extension of the therapist’s hands, which allows the therapist to work more deeply and more quickly.
At Muscle Matters, Karlie’s skill and sensitivity as a therapist ensure you receive the most out of your hot stone therapy.
Be warned: you may just have the best night sleep you have ever had following this treatment…
