Benefits of Hot Stone Massage: Hot stone massage increase blood flow through vasodilatation which increases red and white blood cell motility. It helps the metabolic rate to increase and muscles to relax (allowing for deeper massage), reduces stress and anxiety, and promotes deep relaxation. Heat has long been used to relieve muscle tension and pain as it sedates nerves, which results in pain relief. Hot stones restore healthy body tone by increasing blood flow to the skin. Studies have also shown a reduction in symptoms of autoimmune diseases and a boost to immunity.
