When the going gets tough, the tough need a break. A spa day is a perfect way to do so. From facials to pedicures to massages, there is always something for everyone at a spa.
Massages are one of the most popular choices at a spa. Not only do we offer dental care, we are also a full spa that includes massages. They are relaxing and they also loosen up the muscles if you have had an injury. There are many different types of massages. A few of them are Swedish massage, Shiatsu, and hot stone massages.
What is a Hot Stone Massage?
A hot stone massage uses stones that are smooth and flat and warm up to a toasty 116.6 degrees Fahrenheit. These stones get placed on certain parts of the body, such as the back, the palms, or in between the toes. A therapist may also use the stones and massage a person that way. The warmth of the stones helps to warm and relax the muscles. It also improves circulation and calms down the nervous system.
Types of Stones Used
The stones are usually made of basalt. These stones are rich in protein so they hold heat in really well. River rocks are also used because the water smooths and flattens them over time.
Benefits of a Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massages help with insomnia. Since the stones are warm, they relax you and you have less trouble falling asleep. They also help with arthritis and any other body pains a person may have.
