How many times have you been so burnt out from working a long shift, sitting at your computer all day, chasing after your kids and the dog, or having just climbed Mt. Sanitas, that your whole body hurts?

You try hot showers or sitting in a nice Epsom salt bath, but nothing helps. Your significant other may try giving you a little back rub, but still there is no relief. Imagine if you could get a treatment that provide deep muscle relaxation with the added benefits of heat on your muscles and make you feel amazing afterwards. Well, you can, thanks to hot stone therapy offered here at Heavenly Embrace Wellness.

What’s so special about Hot Stone Massage?

Hot stone massage is a natural therapy in which warm stones, typically river rock or other smooth-surfaced stones made of basalt, are positioned on the body to maximize the therapeutic benefit. This type of massage affects you on both physical and psychological levels. The placement of the stones is usually at specific points on the back, in the palms of the hand, or between the toes but may vary depending on the client’s condition. The technique dates back to 1500 B.C. when it was used by Europeans and Native Americans. The Chinese method of using heated stones dates back over 2000 years as a treatment for internal organ function. Read more about the history of this massage technique.

A few of the benefits of Hot Stone Massage:

  • muscle relaxation. Sometimes overly tense muscles can hinder the massage process. Heat from the stones help relax the muscles, enabling deep tissue to be manipulated more effectively.
  • stress. Studies show that stress is the #1 root of many diseases and disorders. This deep tissue massage reduces stress and tension, and has also been known to help with insomnia.
  • circulation. The hot stones expand your blood vessels, and increases ‘energy flow’, which can stimulate your immune system and aid in digestion.
  • joints. This massage also increases flexibility in the joints, aiding in easier mobility and movement.
  • pain relief. A hot stone massage provides relief from pain associated with carpel tunnel syndrome, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and other chronic conditions. It also helps decrease muscle spasms, and relieves pain and tension created by strained and contracted muscles.

De-stress with Hot Stone Massage

This ancient modality promotes deeper muscle relaxation, melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness and increases circulation and metabolism. Some massage therapists will even place stones on points that are thought to be energy centers of the body to rebalance the body and mind. Whether you need to de-stress after a long workweek, or simply want to relax in preparation for the upcoming holidays, hot stones can help.

Whether the pain you feel in your muscles is from an illness, stress, or simply from running yourself ragged, take some time-out for yourself to get an amazing hot stone massage. It will make you feel like a whole new person when you’re done.

Of course, if you have any of the following conditions, please consider treatments other than Hot Stone Therapy:
