If your new year’s resolution did not include you being more relaxed and calm this year, then it is time to revisit your list. Just like that, we find ourselves in 2018 and with it new challenges, old aggravations and added stress. If you have not yet considered treating yourself to a relaxing experience, then we invite you to kick off your year with a calming and beneficial Hot Stone Massage at Ginko Spa.
What is a hot stone massage?
A hot stone massage is a style of massage where therapists make use of heated stones to help release muscle tension and stress. The Hot Basalt stones are placed on certain areas of the body, most commonly along the spine, shoulders, neck and lower back. This application assists the body in relaxing, warms up muscles for further attention and promotes all over wellness throughout your system.
Basalt is a volcanic type of rock that has the ability to retain heat for long periods of time. Heat itself has always been used to ease pain and muscle tension. It has proven itself a successful short-term solution for pain relief in various parts of the body – most commonly the back. Not only is it a good way to ease muscle tension but also release stress. Muscle spasms caused by stress are very painful if left untreated for too long. A Hot Stone massage is a perfect solution in ridding your body from aching and unwanted stress humps.
