Pain Relief

  While all types of massage can help relieve pain caused by tense muscles, stiff joints   or injuries, a hot stone massage may provide greater relief due to the intense nature of   the massage. Because the hot stones allow the massage therapist to penetrate   deeper, you may find that a hot stone massage leaves you feeling physically better   than a Swedish or deep-tissue massage that does not incorporate heat. It is important   to let your massage therapist know if you feel that the heat from the stones is too much   or that the pressure he is using is too harsh. Pain or discomfort during the massage   process can cause more harm than good after the massage is over.

                                                  Improved Circulation

   Typically, a massage healer allows the heated stones to rest on trigger points in   your   body before beginning the actual massage. As the heat from the stones   penetrates   into your deeper body tissues, your blood vessels open, resulting in   improved   circulation. Poor circulation can lead to fatigue, which tenses the muscles,   and a   buildup of fluid and lactic acid in the muscles. Increased circulation delivers more   oxygen to the muscles, which can help ease aches and pains.

                                                     Mental Benefits

   Massage Healing can result in mental benefits as well as physical ones in many   people. You may find that the relaxation afforded to you through a hot stone massage   helps ease some of your mental stress and tension. A hot stone massage may also   help you combat some of the symptoms of anxiety disorders and depression.   While massage therapy is not a substitute for traditional medical or psychiatric care, it   can be an integral part of your treatment plan.
