Our Hot Stone Massages here at Springs Chiropractic are massages that promote deeper muscle relaxation due to strategically placed smooth, water heated stones on the muscle. The localized heat and weight of the smooth stones warm and relax muscles, allowing your chiropractor to apply deeper pressure to problem areas without causing any discomfort to the patient. Hot stone massage is a unique relaxing experience that is perfect for those who prefer a lighter, more topical massage instead of the deep tissue treatment. This technique provides comforting pressure with the similar benefits of deep tissue work. The heat from the soft stones loosen and relax tense muscles, promoting deep relaxation that allows our professional to manipulate the muscle as needed without causing pain or discomfort to the patient.
Hot stone massage is a variation of traditional massage techniques with it's aspect of smooth stones containing basalt to retain heat, but it is definitely a treatment option for those patients who come in with severe trigger points or just have tension in their muscles from everyday life. Aside from just heat points touching the skin, the stones are also often used as massage implements or tools by our chiropractors for a deeper massage feel. Many of our regular massage clients enjoy the comforting warmth provided by the stone treatments and come monthly for this popular chiropractic treatment.
As many of our clients can relate, Springs Chiropractic hot stone massage treatments offer many physical health benefits. Not only does the warmth of the stones provide clients with cold feet or hands quick relief, the heat can also spread warmth across the body increasing circulation.
