Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage is a highly detoxifying type of massage. The stones themselves actually become the massage tool that I use. The heat helps to relax the muscles and assimilate the circulation allowing toxins to rise up to the skin surface. In combining with a Swedish massage technique further release of the muscle is obtained.
Hot Stone massage is not appropriate if you have diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, or currently on blood thinning medications. You should not receive a hot stone massage if you are pregnant or have a sunburn. This treatment is not recommended if you are menopausal, as it may trigger a hot flash.
