Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage, a luxurious, rejuvenating, specialty massage, normally only found in spas, is now available right here at Lower Bucks Total Health! It melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness, increases circulation and is a great way to escape the stress of the outside world around us. Hot stone massages allow for deeper muscle relaxation then normal massages through the placement of water-heated stones at key points of the body. This type of massage is used in conjunction with other massage techniques such as swedish or deep tissue massage.

The premise behind hot stone massage therapy is that the direct heat of the stones relaxes muscles, allowing Sonja access to the deeper muscle layers. Hot stone massage is ideal for those who want the deep work of a traditional massage, but dislike the strong pressure that is usually associated with them. Combining hot stones with a full body massage provides for an extremely effective massage experience. These hot stones dilate blood vessels, which encourages increased blood flow throughout the body  and also has a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain and tension, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.

The benefits of Hot Stone Massage include

  • Pain relief from conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome and other chronic conditions
  • Deep relaxation of muscles
  • Alleviation of tension and stress
  • Decreased muscle spasms and trigger points
  • Increased joint flexibility
  • Increased circulation and lymphatic drainage

Compared to the other types of massage that we offer, hot stone massage costs slightly more because it is a speciality massage that requires additional preparation and clean-up of the stones as well as overall time compared to other massage techniques.

While hot stone massage can be an extremely relaxing and enjoyable experience, it unfortunately is not for everyone. Those with diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, vascular diseases, inflamed skin conditons, open wounds or sores, cancer or if you are pregnant or are on blood-thinning medication should exercise caution and consult with their physician to see if hot stone massage should be avoided in their specific case.
