One of our most popular massage treatments at Woman Beauty in Nelson is our Aromastone hot stone massage. It’s a blissful head to toe spa treatment incorporating hot stones and essential oils.
But there’s more to this massage than relaxation. In this week’s post we thought we’d share some of the benefits you can expect from hot stone massage.
Three Benefits of Aromastone Hot Stone Massage
You can wave bye-bye to muscular pain:
Whenever you have a nagging, aching muscular pain, we don’t doubt that you’re tempted to pull out a wheat bag or hot water bottle. That’s because heat can help increase blood flow to a specific area and help muscles to relax. If you are suffering from aches due to overexertion, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia or any other non-inflammatory muscle pain, then the Aromastone Massage might just be your new best friend!
You can say ‘Sayonara’ to stress:
While any massage should reduce anxiety and help you relax. The comforting warmth of an Aromastone hot stone massage is particularly beneficial if you’re feeling stressed. There is no doubt that your brain will interpret a safe source of heat as reassuring and pleasant. In turn, this psychological reaction will help to switch off your fight or flight response, lowering your stress levels.
You can welcome sleep:
Sleep plays a vital role in your overall good health. Adequate sleep is essential in maintaining your body’s ability to function; just like eating, drinking and breathing. So if you’re finding it difficult to come by, you need to take steps. Again, any massage therapy will help to promote relaxation and sleep, but an Aromastone hot stone massage could be particularly beneficial. There’s a strong psychological link between being warm and being cosy. When we say goodnight to our babies and children, we will often swaddle them and reassure them that they’ll feel as snug as a bug in a rug because there is a link between cosiness and settling for sleep. Combine the warmth of our Aromastone hot stone massage with the calming effect of the essential oils, and we believe you’re pretty much guaranteed a good night’s rest!
