Hot Stone Massage Braddon Canberra
What is Hot Stone Massage?
Hot stone massage is a type of massage therapy that has been used for hundreds of years, particularly amongst Island nations. Smooth, circular basalt stones are hygienically heated and used by the practitioner and placed on various parts of the body. This in turn helps improve circulation. At Step Into Health Care, hot stones may be used in conjunction with regular Remedial Massage Therapy techniques.
How does it help and what is involved?
Hot stones have a very deep, warming and calming effect on the body. By improving circulation, this can relieve muscular tension, reduce stress and aid recovery. The hot stones are used in different ways such as long flowing strokes, kneading, trigger point therapy or for lymphatic drainage. They may also be used in conjunction with Remedial Massage techniques, however this will be discussed with you during your appointment.
Hot stone massage can be very relaxing, which in itself is beneficial for the body, mind and emotions.
Hot stone massage is suitable for anyone. Your practitioner will avoid any wounds, recent muscle tears or varicose veins as this isn’t appropriate treatment. Also, let your practitioner know if the temperature or pressure need to be adjusted throughout your appointment.
