Hot Stone Therapy at our Northville - Plymouth Center
This consists of a therapeutic deep tissue massage with the use of hot stones. The hot stones warm the muscles, rushing the blood flow to that specific area. When there is sufficient blood flow, the muscles warm and soften. After warming, we will work the muscles and trigger points using specific techniques. The warm stones work the muscles at a much deeper level and release all the tension, pushing toxins and old blood flow out of that area, creating a sensation of water dripping or pouring around the area worked. Once pushed away, new blood flow and nutrients flow back to that area causing the muscle to reheat itself. So, in all actuality, the cold stones are a heating treatment which can benefit the following conditions;
- Muscular aches
- Back pain
- Stress and anxiety
- Poor circulation
- Rheumatic and arthritic conditions
Because of the extreme temperatures applied and the "vascular gymnastics" going on, this treatment is very challenging to your body. If you have any health considerations such as, heart, kidney, circulation problems, diabetes, this is NOT the treatment for you. For any other considerations, always check with your doctor before receiving any stone treatment.
