How are Hot and Cold Stones beneficial?
Massage itself is great for both muscular issues and general ailments. It will help keep muscles supple and in great condition through working specific points. As with general massage, hot and cold stones can help to relieve many conditions and the use of heat can give results more quickly than standard massage. The reason being the heat penetrates the soft tissue more deeply than standard massage. The cold stones can equally provide a refreshing touch within a hot stone massage and give relief from the heat.
Hot stones will help to soothe aching muscles and cold stones will help to reduce inflammation. Together they work to complement each other to give an all round treatment.
Hot and Cold Stone Massage has been around for as long as standard massage and is used in all cultures. It has so many benefits and can be combined with other treatments to provide a full body or holistic treatment.
