What Is a Hot Stone Massage in Orem

Paradise Massage’s website gives the perfect definition of a hot stone massage: “Hot stone massage is a natural therapy in which warmed stones are positioned on parts of the client’s body to maximize the therapeutic benefit. The stones used are typically river rocks or other very smooth-surfaced stones made of basalt. These stones are heated in sanitizing water before use. The high iron content in basalt helps the stones retain heat during the massage. The heat allows the therapist to work deeply without the pressure usually needed.”

Sounds pretty relaxing right? Well this specific kind of therapy also has countless benefits, too. The first comes from the heat of the stones. The heat releases on your muscles and relaxes them in a way to allow your massage therapist to reach and work with even deeper muscle layers. Overly tense muscles make things more difficult for your therapist, so the stones are a benefit to the both of you. They help provide you with a more thorough massage compared to the regular massages you’re used to receiving. Once again, can it sound any better? The tightness in your back could be gone, and your stress levels will be lessened.

Healing benefits from Hot Stone Massage in Orem

In terms of treating various conditions, hot stone massage can help with pain caused by fibromyalgia, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, other chronic musculoskeletal conditions, strained muscles, muscle spasms, and chronic stress. Not to mention, the whole process increases flexibility and brings total relaxation. You can also find the pain relief you’ve needed from the injuries or stiff joints from an accident.

A surprising benefit from the hot stones occurs in the blood vessels. As the heat works on your body, the blood vessels open and improve your circulation. When we have poor circulation, this brings fatigue, tense muscles, and buildup of fluids in the muscles. But if you have good circulation, this helps bring oxygen into the muscles, which then helps with soreness and muscle aches. As the circulatory system improves, then your body release natural toxins that help with self-healing.

The hot stone massage treatment is so effective and relaxing, oftentimes customers fall asleep during the procedure. Guess that’s proof enough that this kind of treatment is very relaxing.
