Hot Stone Massage Therapy
Hot Stone massage therapy treats physical ailments through the application of heat as a complement to various established massage techniques. Evian Salon & Spa’s licensed massage therapists incorporate and adapt methods by utilizing hot stones to expand blood vessels and improve the circulation of our University City clientele.
How does Hot Stone Massage Work?
Smooth flat stones are heated in water or with dry heat and carefully placed on precise areas of the body. Our practitioners gently manipulate the heated stones using gliding strokes with specialized techniques to maximize the therapies effectiveness. Massage is always a beneficial and soothing therapeutic tool and the addition of hot stones provides an extra level of relaxation.
Hot stone massage can relieve many symptoms related to:
- Poor blood circulation
- Back pain
- Chronic pain
- Stress and anxiety
- Muscle aches and tension
The History of Hot Stone Massage
Different forms of Hot Stone massage date back to Ancient Egypt with variations also practiced during certain North American Native ceremonies as an energy cleansing and healing tool. Hot stone massage techniques eventually merged with established massage therapies as a more comfortable form of achieving deep muscle release using heat application.
