One day I woke up and could not get out of my bed. The back pains and the lack of willingness to do anything ended up taking care of me, that’s when I began to think about the possibility of starting to practice massages.
And to my surprise when I began to know this world I realized that there were several types of massage, much more than I could imagine.
We all know that massage therapy has become increasingly adept because of its many benefits, how about knowing more about its variations?
Today we are going to talk about the technique I most recently met.
Hot stone massage is a variation of traditional massage therapy. Also called geothermal therapy, which is characterized by being a massage technique created thousands of years ago that has been heavily sought after in spas and therapy places, being used mainly for health care, wellness and beauty. The hot stone massage massage is also usually combined with a contrasting mode of cold stones.
How does it work?
The caregiver usually begins by applying cream or oil on the patient’s body allowing the stones to glide smoothly over his body muscles. After the hot stones have relaxed your muscles, the massage therapist must remove them and then, using your own hands, will massage directly on your skin.
A hot stone massage takes an average of 60 to 90 minutes.
