The Comfort of Hot Stone Massage
True to its name, hot stone therapy relies on stones that have been warmed to a temperature that can help reap optimum benefits when placed on different areas of the body. An all-natural form of massage, the hot stone treatment is generally done using stones collected from rivers. Alternatively, it can also make use of evenly-shaped basalt stones. As part of the hot stone massage session, the stones are warmed in disinfected, clean water prior to being used on the clients.

Here are some ways hot stone massage can be beneficial:
Eases the Muscles – The warmth emanating from the stones eases the stress in your muscles, making it possible for the therapist to reach deep into your muscular layers. If the muscles are too stiff, they can impact the effectiveness of the massage. With the help of hot stones, however, the muscles become relaxed, facilitating the process of massaging and healing tender tissues.
Helps in Healing the Pain – When it comes to offering pain relief from sore muscles, aching joints or any other physical ailments, each type of massage has its own benefits to offer. With their intensity, however, hot stone massages can prove to be even more effective than other types of massages. Since the hot stone therapy is designed to let the therapist reach into the depth of your muscle, clients often praise its ability to ensure general well-being to a greater degree, especially when compared to massages that do not make use of the warming technique.
Enhances Blood Flow – Prior to the massage, the therapists usually position the warm stones on targeted areas of your body. The placement of the stones allows heat to enter into the depth of your muscles, which widens the blood vessels and improves blood flow throughout the body. Insufficient blood flow causes tiredness, which adds stress to the muscles as well as filling them with lactic acid and excess fluid. Improving blood flow allows muscles to receive a higher supply of oxygen, which is helpful in healing muscle soreness and discomfort.
Psychological Relief – Massages have been known to be beneficial to physical as well as mental health. The experience of getting a hot stone session can lead you to feel mentally relaxed and happy. In many cases, hot stone treatment has been found to benefit those suffering from a depressed or anxious state of mind. Although a massage session cannot replace conventional medicinal procedures or psychological treatments, it can still be essential to your recovery.
Hot stone massage therapy helps melt away tension, ease muscle stiffness, and increase circulation and metabolism. Hot stones, when coupled with massage, also help to expand blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body.

Reduces Stress – Deep tissue massage is a ray of hope for people who lead a particularly stressful life and deal with the other problems caused by it, such as muscle tightness, stiff shoulders and stress headaches.

As the massage therapist applies the required amount of pressure, it not only helps relieve the stress from each muscle at a time, but also alleviates any mental distress.
Heals Pain – Massage therapy has been accepted by the Mayo Clinic as an effectual method of relieving pain. Swedish massages offer a flexible pain management solution. This means that the sessions can be performed to heal severe body pain resulting from conditions like osteoarthritis, or they can be employed for treating targeted areas like a sore back.

Improved Blood Flow – An article published in Bodybuilding.com attests to the fact that the massage technique employed in Swedish massage improves the circulation of blood, and speeds up the excretion process.
