The all too popular line “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me” has been called under much scrutiny during these challenging times. It appears all words do is stir up anxiety while dreadful news brings depression which engulfs the body in stressful hormones and metabolic responses. As words have taken on a different affect, massage therapists have repurposed the stone for incredible therapeutic purposes. The hot stone treatment has been in practice for thousands of years and has been a stable pillar in the rehabilitation and relaxing therapeutic realm.
What exactly is hot stone and what affects can a session bring me? The heating of smooth stones is the preparation while the contact placement and gliding is the implementation. The soothing heat dilates the vascular system hydrating the tissues with blood full of nutrients while flushing out the metabolic waste left behind by cellular activity. Furthermore, fascial adhesions become less compacted as they melt while tense tight muscles are relieved decreasing pain and spasm. The warming qualities of the stones allows an individual to seek deep into parasympathetic, aiding the rehabilitation process and decreasing stress.
Hot stones can play a key role in trigger point resolvent, increasing movement restrictions, hypertonic muscle release and in resolving adhesions. Besides from its many benefits hot stone therapy is ultimately a relaxation paradise allowing tension and stress to melt away.
