What Is A Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage therapy is used to help you feel fresh and relax tense muscles and damaged soft tissues throughout your body. Heated stones that are flat and smooth are placed on particular parts of your body. According to research conducted by the University of New Hampshire Health Services (UNH Health & Wellness), “hot stones are heated to between 130 to 145 degrees”.
The stones are placed on the following spots and are 100% safe when done by an expert masseur.
- On your back
- On your stomach
- On your chest
- On your face
- On your palms
- On your feet and toes
Our Hot Stone Massage Procedure
At Vancouver Asian Angels Massage, our therapists discuss your goals and concerns and then determine the areas of your body to target specifically. We warm our stones to the right temperature. We ensure they are not too hot to burn but enough to give off heat.
Our therapists will place stones at the concerned areas of your body to promote relaxation. They would use a couple of palm-sized stones to massage you as well. They will dig into the knots and make you tense to unwind you.
Massage therapists at Asian Angels hold heated stones as they massage your body using Swedish Massage techniques such as:
- Long strokes
- Circular movements
At Asian Angels Massage, our therapist uses a cold stone after using the hot stone to calm puffy blood vessels and calm the skin.
Our Hot Stone Massage Techniques
Effleurage: The gentle touch of warmth
Effleurage involves the smooth gliding of heated stones over the body, using long, sweeping strokes. This technique serves as an introduction to the warmth and relaxation that hot stone massage offers. As our therapist gently moves the stones across your skin, the radiant heat penetrates deeply, soothing tense muscles and promoting a sense of calm. Effleurage helps increase blood circulation, prepare the body for deeper work, and create a harmonious energy flow.
Petrissage: Deepening the sense of relaxation
Petrissage techniques in hot stone massage involve kneading, rolling, and squeezing the muscles with the heated stones. These motions, combined with the penetrating warmth of the stones, help to release muscle tension, knots, and adhesions. Our therapists use their hands, fingers, and stones to apply varying pressure levels, allowing the muscles to unwind and relax gradually. Petrissage helps to improve flexibility, increase range of motion, and relieve chronic pain or stiffness.
Tapotement: Awakening the senses
Tapotement techniques in hot stone massage involve rhythmic tapping or pounding with heated stones. This technique awakens the senses, invigorates the body, and stimulates circulation. As the therapist rhythmically taps the stones against your body, the vibrations penetrate deep into the muscles, promoting relaxation and revitalization. Tapotement can help to awaken stagnant energy, improve lymphatic drainage, and rejuvenate tired muscles. This technique leaves you feeling refreshed, energized, and ready to embrace the day ahead.
