Hot Stone Massage
Warmed stones and massage techniques are combined to relax tense muscles, relieve pain and stiffness, and improve circulation. The heat penetrates the skin to promote better blood flow, release toxins and create a deeper muscle relaxation.
Gina Chubb – Hot Stone Massage
I use smooth, flat, heated volcanic stones to loosen and relax muscles to allow for easy tissue manipulation. The stones are placed on specific parts of your body. A hot stone massage in a comforting environment is one of the most effective spa treatments to relieve stress, muscle tension and anxiety.
The pressure points along your body guide my hands and the placement of the stones. The heat penetrates your body, opening up your blood vessels helping oxygen to flow throughout your body. With regular hot stone massages, you may find that your sleep comes easier and is more restorative. Massage also releases endorphins, which are the body’s natural painkillers.
The stones may be placed along your spine, on your stomach, chest, palms, legs and feet. I may also hold heated stones while massaging your body using techniques such as long strokes, circular movements, vibration and kneading.
“The way to health is to have an aromatic bath and a scented massage every day.”
