The heat of hot stones during a massage allows for your tissue to open up and be accessed on a much deeper level without too much pressure needing to be applied. This helps both the therapist and client achieve more results. Increased circulation and energy flow are assisted by the heat, in turn, the lymphatic system signals a release of toxins. A client should feel a comforting lightness from this wonderful treatment. Some people choose hot stones just for the relaxation purpose where they let the heat take them to a soothing place of bliss which is wonderful as well.
This is a therapy at Refined Therapeutic Massage that can be integrated when appropriate. Discuss with your therapist if using hot stones will be beneficial for your treatment. Note that there are some health conditions that do not indicate heat to be used as part of therapy.
