Seasons change, colors change and
moods can change as old man winter blows out summer’s warm, sunny weather and
replaces it with cooler temperatures, shorter days and less sunshine rays. Prepare
your mind and body for the changing seasons this year by incorporating hot
stone massage into your overall health and wellness regimen. This wintertime
favorite massage technique can help combat the negative effects that less sun
and cooler temperatures can take on your body by warming your muscles and your
mind from the inside out.
Warm Muscles Make Way for a Healthy Body
According to the 2007 National Health Interview Survey, an estimated
18 million U.S. adults and 700,000 children had received massage therapy in the
previous year. People use massage for a variety of health-related purposes,
including relief from pain, rehabilitation from sports injuries, reduction in
stress, anxiety and depression, as well as to increase relaxation and your
body’s general wellness.
Hot stone massage in particular
is best for easing muscle tension without deep pressure, thereby being an
excellent treatment for deep muscle strains and tight muscle knots associated
with stress and/or injury. This massage therapy technique has been around for
hundreds of years and is routinely used for increasing your body’s circulation,
which allows the body to pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs.
All of these traits can be especially beneficial for individuals who suffer
from arthritic conditions or stiff muscles and joints, which typically is more
bothersome as the weather temperatures become bitter and cold in the winter
Warm Attitudes Make Way for Happy Times
Hot stone massage also can help
combat the mental doldrums that old man winter can blow your way by creating a
deep sense of calmness and relaxation. By putting your mind at ease, hot stone
massage can leave you feeling energized and ready to tackle any challenges you
may face during the hustle and bustle of the winter months.
As the holiday season rolls in
and hectic schedules become the norm, hot stone massage can help create a
meditative relaxing effect that balances the health and well-being of your mind
and body. This popular massage technique enhances a regular deep tissue or
Swedish massage session by incorporating hot, smooth stones on specific trigger
points throughout your body. The leading purpose of using these stones in your
massage therapy session is to open up your body’s energy channels, thereby
significantly reducing muscle tension and improving relaxation throughout your
mind and body.
