Treat yourself to the ultimate pampering experience — a hot stone massage at Sevier Valley Massage of Richfield, Utah.
Tired, achy, or overused muscles can range from being merely uncomfortable to almost debilitating. Deep tissue massage can work the knots out of your muscles, relieving pain and restoring freedom of movement.
Hot stone massage involves heating basalt stones in water and then placing them on different parts of the body, including the back, chest, stomach, and legs. The chosen points may be related to your specific condition, or they may be areas traditionally known to hold energy.
The heat from the stones transfers to the muscles below, warming them and making them more pliable and receptive to manipulation.
Although the stones are light, their weight helps induce a sense of calm and well-being as the warmth slowly spreads through the body. As the heat dissipates, our massage therapists may replace the cooling stones with warmer ones, and they may also use them to massage areas of your body with firm but gentle, gliding strokes.
Besides the proven physical benefits of using heat to penetrate muscles and tissues to make them more pliable, hot stones augment the massage spa experience by introducing a primordial element to the process, which can bring about deeper relaxation.
The result is a profound sense of calm and well-being, improved flexibility, and a reduction in pain. Alleviating pain and mental stressors lead to better health as well as better sleep quality. Professional full-body massage works to reset your internal rhythms and recenter you, releasing built-up tensions that can impact not only your mood, memory, and concentration, but your body’s functions as well.
