Hot Stone Massage - What It Is And How It Works

Hot stone massage is perhaps one of the fastest growing techniques being used for massage therapy world wide. Even though it is relatively new, it is growing in popularity very quickly. The healing powers of this new massage make it one of the most desirable therapies. This type of massage was first developed in Sweden and it is just like it sounds. Hot stones are used with the more traditional massage to help people relive stress as well as aching tight muscles.

The use of the hot stones is quite different then the usual massage technique. A therapeutic body massage is done by using a gentle touch that slowly works the kinks out of your muscles. You may be surprised to find out that in some cases the massage therapist may even massage you without even touching you. That is where they come into play. The only time the therapist may have to touch you is to reposition the stones to ensure that you are getting the full benefits and that they are where they need to be.

One thing about the hot stones is that there is no pain involved at all, where as regular massage may hurt as the muscles are being working to loosen them up. The kneading action of traditional massage can sometimes be painful so, this is a great alternative.

The type of stone massage can vary depending on the therapist and the patient. The therapist will evaluate the patient's needs and tailor the therapy as needed. Basalt stones are the stones that are used as they can keep the heat in them for the length of the massage. These stones are usually heated up to 120 degrees before they are used.

Once the stones have been heated they are then placed strategically on the parts of the body that need to benefit the most. Usually body parts such as the arms and legs will require the lighter stones where as the heavier stones will be placed on the torso. The ones that are placed on the torso are usually 3 to 5 pound stones as they can penetrate the heat better to the thicker muscles.

The therapist will then take each stone and work it into the muscles by rubbing it where the problem areas are. Now keep in mind that the hot stone therapy does not require the massaging of the stones. You can simply place the stones in the areas of need and let the heat do the rest of the work.

If you suffer with back problems or stiff muscles then this may be just the thing for you. Talk with a massage therapist and see if a hot stone massage is a good option for you and your body.

Take Charge - Massage And A Self-Actualized You

Lots of people enjoy a massage and many see it as a gift to themselves - sort of a reward for dealing with day-to-day life and the craziness of work, family, traffic, school and other sources of stress.

Who's not up for relaxing in a beautiful, calm studio, with low lighting, pretty music, wonderful aromas and strong, expert hands massaging away the cares of the day?

In the workplace, employees that get a massage regularly tend to have increased productivity and ability to focus and are, as a group, not so stressed as coworkers who don't take advantage of the mental and physical health enhancements that accompany massage. But, often we tend to look for an excuse, or feel like we need a reason to get a massage. For some, it takes a significant event to push them out of thinking about it, into actually picking up the phone and scheduling their massage.

If you find yourself searching for justification or an excuse to get a massage, here's an idea: Knowing how good massage is at relieving stress after an event, why not join that group of people who get a massage BEFORE a potentially high stress event? Individuals taking this proactive approach experience a measurable decrease in anxiety during and immediately after the stressful situation or event, along with reported moderation's in heart and breathing rates.

It's also well documented that massage substantially alters aspects of blood chemistry for the better.
Why not take a self-actualizing step, and enjoy that kind of relief as part of your preparation going into that day of the big business meeting or exam?

Walking into the situation, inwardly you know your muscles and tissues are less bound by up tension and toxins.

Stepping up to the plate, you know you're on top of your game since those by-products of stress can tend to make you sluggish, if not flat-out fatigued. You're more aware, more alert and your immune system is stronger. You're ahead of the game, just by taking the time for your massage BEFORE the event gets underway.

There are always good reasons to decide to make the call or the click to schedule your full body massage.

Now you have another reason - a new 'take charge' idea that extends to a more relaxed, self-actualized and powerful you.

You not only deserve the indulgence of a massage, it makes perfect sense.

The Effects of Massage on the Human Body

Most of us cannot deny that there is nothing better than taking timeout from our stressful day to day lives and having some "me" time. A perfect way to unwind and give you that very much needed "me" time, is to book an appointment with a well trusted and qualified massage therapist. A full body massage isn't just about winding down and relaxing, it really can have multiple benefits to your general health too. There has been many medical studies based around the full body massage procedure, and these studies have proven some of the positive effects that may come from having a full body massage.

A full body massage is a hands-on manipulation of the skin, muscle and joints. It's a therapeutic stroking and kneading of your body's muscles, which is done to relax muscle spasm, relieve all of that built up tension, help improve your body's circulation, and help to rid all of those built up toxins and wastes from your body.

In today's fast moving world that we all live in, it can become ever so easy to simply forget about our health and well being, but if you can afford to take timeout and keep having a full body massage on a regular basis, this really is an excellent way to fight off tensions and keep you feeling on top of the world.

Some of us are guilty of only ever taking this sort of timeout when it is a special occasion such as a birthday or anniversary, which is still pleasant for you and leaves you feeling ever so relaxed, but if you can book yourself a course of massage treatments...well, this is where you will gain the maximum benefits which the full body massage procedure has to offer.

Did you know that stress and tension is one of the main causes of diseases and illnesses in people today? Quite shocking news really when you think of how stressful even your daily commute to work can be. It really is imperative to relieve all of this built up stress and tension if you wish to lead a long and healthy life.

The benefits from simply having a body massage truly seem to be endless, and depending on your current lifestyle and general health, the benefits will be different for you, than they will be for let's say your next door neighbour. Having a body massage can improve your body's blood circulation, which most of us know is vital for a healthy body. A lot of people make the mistake of thinking it will only benefit the external parts of their body, but this isn't the case at all. A body massage will also help to keep all of your internal organs healthy and keep them all working efficiently.

Having a body massage on a regular basis will help to fight depression, blood pressure, back problems, diabetes and even infertility. After reading this, it now seems body massage is the best thing going for you and your health, but it is not suitable for everyone and you must keep this in mind. If you suffer from heart problems, cancer, or skin problems, then you really should discuss this with your doctor before booking yourself in for your very first massage session.

You really can improve your well being and live a much healthier life by having a regular body massage. So stop putting off that all important "me" time and get yourself booked in for your first session.

Here's to a much healthier life for you and me!

Spa Gift Certificates Are Not Just for Christmas

When most people think of spa gift certificates, they think of the typical occasions: Christmas, Birthdays, and Valentine's Day. However, there are many more occasions where the gift of relaxation and pampering would be appreciated.

  1. Baby Showers - How many blankets can one mother use? What she really needs is an hour or so to herself. Remember, after the baby is born, sleep is a rarity. Her eyes will light up when she gets it and when she redeems it.

  2. Bridal Showers - Being a bride is expensive and stressful. Since most brides consider a fresh manicure and pedicure a wedding necessity, why not a gift certificate for her shower? Of course, she would also appreciate a facial or a massage as well. The sky is the limit when it comes to the bride.

  3. Bridal Party Gifts - As a bridesmaid or groomsman, how many pieces of jewelry or engraved flasks can you use? Why not give your bridal party the gift of relaxation? After all, they are probably under nearly as much stress as the happy couple.

  4. Sweet Sixteen or Bar / Bat Mitzvah - These days teens are much more sophisticated and they are very conscious of their appearance. A teen facial gift certificate will help them learn how to care for their skin, prevent skin damage and premature aging as well as keeping acne and blackheads at bay. And for the young women, a certificate for a makeup application / lesson will help ensure her application is age appropriate. After all, she may not listen to a parent, but she might listen to a professional.

  5. Mothers' Day - Whether she is your mom or the mother of your kids, she works hard and deserves to be pampered. Enough of the same old flowers. Give the moms in your life the gift of someone else taking care of her for a change.

  6. Fathers' Day - Hey, don't forget about Dad! Mother's tend to get treated more than fathers, but Dads work hard and need a break as well. Treating the Dad in your life to a massage will show him that you know how hard he works and that he is appreciated.

  7. Graduation - Graduates have worked hard to get their diploma and are either moving on to the next educational level or looking for a job. Either way, the graduates in your life could use relaxation, a manicure, or a make-up session to show them at their best as they prepare for the future.

  8. Wedding Anniversaries - Couples who are celebrating momentous anniversaries would enjoy a couple's massage. Many spas will treat these couples with a little extra if they know why the certificate was purchased; perhaps a glass of champagne and some chocolates after their services would be in order.

  9. Retirement - After working the past 40 plus years, don't you think a luxurious spa treatment would be in order? Now that the retiree has nothing but time, treating him or her to a massage or facial might be just what is needed to get into permanent vacation mode.

  10. Boss' Day or Administrative Assistant's Day - Flowers, last year; lunch, the year before; candy, year before that. Let that spa gift certificate be your go to gift this year and for years to come. With multiple services available, you can give a different gift each year and it will take you awhile to run out!

I hope these ideas get you thinking. A spa gift certificate is easy, a great value, and is always welcome. Remember, it is a gift that will keep you in their thoughts for a long time. Keep in mind that you can often purchase these without leaving your home. Most spas offer instant gift certificates on their websites so you can print and have it ready at your convenience.
