Kneading Hands now offers Hot Stone Massage!
Hot Stone Massage is a very grounding modality. The stones are of the Earth, and Earth’s grounding energy can be just what one needs in our fast paced, multi-tasked world. Hot Stone Massage is an ancient form of therapeutic bodywork using heated stones as an extension of the therapists hands.
Smooth, flatter stones are used for gliding along longer muscles; gently warming and detoxifying tissues; relaxing over-used sore muscles. With heat and added pressure more pointed stones are used to address deeper restrictions.
Hot Stone Massage can promote the therapeutic benefits of heat in combination with the best hands-on methods. Deeply soothing and relaxing this method increases circulation and boosts the immune system.
As with any massage modality, you may present contraindications to Hot Stone Massage. Always remember, a professional therapist will do a thorough health intake to determine any concerns and contraindications for specific treatments.
As with all massage, remember to hydrate well after receiving a hot stone massage!
