Hot Remedial Massage
At bodyrocktherapy, the hot stones are used as part of your remedial treatment as a tool for engaging deeply with the soft tissue. The stones have a high mineral content and naturally retain heat for a long period of time.
The application of hot stone therapy is incorporated along with other specific remedial techniques but equally can be used alone as part of a therapeutic or relaxing massage.
Deep, Pure Relaxation
There are some documented accounts of various cultures laying heated stones on the body dating back over 1000 years. Its therefore likely this practice has been going on for many many years before they were introduced into traditional Spa treatments. Hot stone massage continues to be a popular choice for those looking for a luxurious and deeply relaxing therapy.
Beat Stress with Massage
Massage therapy is known to stimulate a part of the autonomic nervous system which is responsible for maintaining normal, relaxed body functioning.
Receiving massage during times of stress can reduce heart rate, slow breathing and so restores balance back to the nervous system and the organs which in turn promotes improved health and a sense of calmness
