At Just Massage, following warming herbal tea, a treatment begins with the placing of heated, smooth stones on key specific points of the body including palms of the hands and between the toes.
More hot stones of varying sizes are then used to massage the body following a light application of your chosen aromatherapy oil. The oil not only helps the stones to glide more effectively but adds another "layer" of relaxation as the essential oils work their healing magic through your skin and senses. As the heat of the stones warms and relaxes the muscles, deeper pressure can then also be applied if you desire...
The hot stones when placed and moved over the skin, expand blood vessels which encourages increased blood flow throughout the body. The effect is both healing and sedative and can help to relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote DEEP relaxation.
Some of the many benefits of this highly therapeutic treatment include...
- Decreased muscle tension, pain and spasms
- Reduced chronic stress, anxiety and tension
- Relief from the pain associated with fibromyalgia, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome and other chronic conditions.
- Increased flexibility in joints, improving mobility and movement
- Relief from the pain and tension created by strained and contracted muscles
- Improved circulation
- Increased feeling of well-being, which can contribute to better sleep patterns and relief from depression
- Hot stone massage is also suited to people who have muscle tension but prefer a lighter massage.
The Just Massage full body hot stone massage takes around 1½ hours (sometimes a little longer!) and by the end of it, we guarantee you will feel utterly, deeply and blissfully relaxed.
