One of the most relaxing massages available is the hot stone massage. It’s a great, great, great if you just want to just relax and de-stress. It can be very therapeutic and a great alternative to a deep tissue massage (which we also can do at Warwick Chiropractic & Massage in Lacey). So if you can’t take the deep, deep therapy of a deep tissue massage, this is the way to go.
We use very smooth and soft rocks and their application forms many benefits to the patient as they warm up the muscles, the tissues, ligaments, and tendons. The benefits of this include:
- Relief from chronic pain
- Relieve stress levels
- Promote deep relaxation
The rocks are nice and smooth and oil is applied to them before application. They are not so hot as to burn you and of course we can increase or decrease the temperature of them based on your preference. We never leave them on your back, but rather hold them in our hands and use them to apply the massage.
The massage provides further benefits including opening and expansion of the blood vessels which improves circulation, deep detoxication, stimulates the immune system and can have a positive effect on the digestive system.
Patients who suffer from such conditions as chronic back pain, fibromyalgia, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) can all benefit from this type of massage. And of course, if you are fit and well, it’s great for you too as it is soothing and relaxing.
If you are looking for something a little different from your massage, then hot stones is certainly one massage type that you should check out.
