Spa in Romania. Hot stone massage.

  1. 1. HOT STONE MASSAGE by INTERMEDLINE www.intermedline.com
  2. 2. The hot stone massage as a form of “thermotherapy” is an age-old healing therapy since ancient Egyptians. The hot stones warmed by fire were also used by Native Americans to treat aching muscles. The North American massage therapists start using it in the early 90’ and today it is an increasingly popular choice at day spas and massage centers all over the world.
  3. 3. Before to book a hot stone massage you’ll have to check with your doctor to make sure that hot stone massage therapy is right for you. It is better to book a stone massage treatment on a day you will not have to rush out somewhere after this massage treatment.
  4. 4. Come to the massage salon with a few minutes earlier before the hot stone stone massage session starts to accommodate yourself with the atmosphere from the massage salon. It is also good to know it is prohibited to eat heavy meals or to drink alcohol before stone massage. It is usually fine to wear bikini bottoms or knickers during this massage and the massage therapist will be very skilled to strategically place towels on your body. The stone massage treatment will last between ½ – 1 hour.
  5. 5. The stones used for hot stone massage are usually made from basalt , a black volcanic rock that absorbs and retains the heat very well. These stones are also very smooth and they do not irritate the skin in any way. Beside this, the massage therapist will treat your skin with oils to ensure a smooth glide and to prevent any trauma to skin. The massage therapist will sanitize the stones and he will place them into a stone heater which is filled with water typically heated to 50-53 degrees Celsius.
  6. 6. The massage therapist will place the warmed stones at key acupressure points throughout the body. These acupressure points are locations on the body that are thought to release the flow of energy and promote the body’s own healing process. The massage therapist will use many stones of various shapes and sizes. The big stones are used for big muscles and the small stones are used for smaller muscles.
  7. 7. Some styles of stone massage incorporate chilled stones into the massage session. These stones are made from marble and are placed into a bowl of iced water before they are used. A good massage therapist will always know when to use hot stones and when is best to use cold stones or other massage techniques to relax tense muscles , relieve pain and stiffness and to improve circulation.
  8. 8. Those who do hot stone massage can customize the treatment to a client’s specific needs and preferences. The massage therapist will also use a variety of strokes and massage techniques to massage you , working with the stones and his hands . These stones may be used as massage tools or they can be temporarily left in some places on your body.
  9. 9. The benefits of hot stone massage are: -heal your body ; -revive your energy ; -increase circulation and metabolism ; -expand blood vessels and encourages blood flow throughout your body ;
  10. 10. - have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce anxiety, promote tranquility, ameliorate insomnia and depression ; - provides relief from pain associated with fibromyalgia , arthritis, carpel tunnel syndrome , other chronic conditions ;
