Hot Stone Massage Benefits


After a long days work, where everything that could go wrong has gone wrong, you need to treat yourself to something that is strictly for you. Don’t worry about the spouse, the kids, who will be cooking dinner; you need to maintain your sanity! Everyone is worried about other people’s wellbeing and business that they tend to forget about themselves. Don’t let that person be you!

Come into Excellent Esthetics for a Hot Stone Massage. This will take about an hour to an hour and a half of your time but will leave you feeling relaxed and loosen those tight muscles you’ve had just about all week. This type of massage uses heated, smooth, flat stones that are placed and circulated around an individual’s body, which is said to improve the body’s circulation. People enjoy Hot Stone Massages because it is a lighter, comforting massage and does not use deep pressure.

The benefits of Hot Stone Massages include but are not limited to:

  • Improving back, shoulder, neck pain
  • Increases blood circulation
  • Decreases joint pain
  • Reduces stress

The stones used are basalt rock, which absorbs and retains heat very well. The Massage Therapist will sanitize and heat the stones in water that is between 122°F – 127°F before the appointment. Everyone’s heat tolerance is different, so don’t be afraid to speak up and let the Therapist know if the stones are too hot or not hot enough. This appointment is meant to relieve any stress you as an individual may have. As foreign as it may sound, it is all about you and how you are feeling so speak up and let us know what we can do to make it a more relaxing and pleasant experience.

In order to take care of your loved ones, you must take care of yourself first. Let’s be honest, no one is having a good time when you are stressed out and crabby. Come in for a Hot Stone Massage and the hot stones will surely melt your worries and stress away.

Please keep in mind that Hot Stone Massages may not be the correct type of massage for certain people. Check with a medical professional if you are prone to blood clots, pregnant, have a skin disease/open wound or any other medical condition before booking a Hot Stone Massage.
