Hot Stone Massage

Hot Stone Massage in Edinburgh

Many people find that adding heat can help to reduce the pain and discomfort felt with a variety of different conditions. Obvious examples would be the hot water bottles used by ladies with menstrual cramps and the warm compresses which can be applied alongside cold compresses to relieve sprained ankles.

With this in mind, it makes sense that heat would be used as part of massage treatments in order to enhance the potential benefits.

During a hot stone massage, your chosen therapist will use a carefully heated stone alongside massage techniques to enable you to experience a more intense level of pain relief and stress reduction from your treatment. This will usually be a type of volcanic rock such as basalt due to its ability to retain heat without becoming overwhelming.

Typically, hot stone massages in Edinburgh will either involve placing stones on relevant pressure points or holding them in the hands while massaging tense and strained tissues. When the stones are placed around the body, this is done to heat the muscles and make them more receptive to manipulation and treatment. Both methods can be very effective in restoring the flow of energy around the body and improving circulation.
