Muscle Relaxation: The heat from the stones help your muscles relax allowing the service provider to manipulate your deep tissues more effectively.
Improved Circulation: As the heat from the stones penetrates deeper into your body tissues, your blood vessels open up resulting in better circulation.
Mental Benefits: Relaxation through a hot stone massage may help ease mental stress and tension and combat some fo the symptoms of anxiety disorders and depression. Massage is not a substitute for medical care, but can be incorporated into your treatment plan
Pain Relief: Hot stones may provide greater relief than a relaxation massage because of the intense nature of the deeper penetration with the stones.
