Using a strategy of changing between basalt and marble stones during your hot and cold stone massage creates deep relaxation throughout your body. The use of stones of different temperature has been scientifically and medically proven to be of great benefit for healing, relaxation and pain-relief. In addition, massaging and alternating the hot and cool stones helps every cell in the body to receive more oxygen and nutrients and moves lymph thereby encouraging a more effective removal of toxins.
Hot and Cold Stone therapy can be used to treat muscular injury or inflammation by using cooled or frozen stones. These provide a thermo-therapeutic effect within the circulatory system, allowing the body to heal faster and more efficiently. The cold stones used in this massage service, force the blood vessels to stimulate the nervous system, increase oxygen flow and speed up the removal of waste products and pain. Beyond that, cold stones offer therapeutic effects on a range of conditions ranging from easing arthritis pain and muscle injuries to alleviating sinus congestion, helps to reduce swelling, relax muscle spasms, decrease menstrual pain and restore energy levels. Alternating hot and cold stones — a technique known as thermal contrasting — can also help stimulate organ reflexes and blood vessels, increase blood flow to areas with inadequate circulation, help remove impurities and give skin a firmer texture.
