Benefits of Hot Stone Massage for clients:
  • Instant heat, providing a warm feeling for the client, can also aid relaxation
  • An instant stress-reliever due to the sedating effect on the nervous system
  • Allows for deep and even pressure
  • Deep heat aids the alleviation of muscle tension and aches and pains
  • Increases blood flow, thus bringing new oxygenated blood to tissues and removing waste products effectively
  • Increases the flow of lymph, helping the body to rid itself of toxins and to aid the immune system
  • Improved circulation of blood and lymph also improves skin tone and muscle health
  • Localised rise in body temperature increases cellular metabolism (in that area)
  • Encourages the client to ‘let go’ as eases tension
