Stone Massage: One Of Life's Best Pleasures

Mar 21, 2008
You can't deny it. Massage is truly one of the greatest pleasures you can ever experience in your lifetime. Stone massage, which is a variation of the classic massage, is one of the fastest rising forms of therapy that does not only give a pleasurable sensation but also does wonders for your mind and body.

This type of massage, which incorporates the use of heated stones to be placed on key energy points of the body, is effective in releasing muscular tension thus allows for deep tissue and muscle penetration. These stones because of their innate ability to absorb and retain heat are excellent in helping the muscles loosen up and relieve stress.

When you go for stone massage, the therapist will place the heated stones on parts of the body that are called chakras or energy channels. The therapist will then massage your body using Swedish strokes and sometimes use the stones to apply pressure on your muscles.

During the session, aromatherapy candles will be lighted up and soothing music and nature sounds will be played to enhance the relaxation benefits of the therapy. The relaxing environment will make it easier for you to calm your mind and body and make you forget about the daily stressors of your life.

For this reason, it is highly recommended that you try your best to shun away any stress related thoughts that roam around your head during the session. You will also be advised to loosen up your muscles because tensed muscles are hard to relieve.

If it is your first time to engage in this type of massage and you may be feeling a little anxious, be sure to communicate to your therapist any issues or concerns that you may have. Whether it's about the room temperature, the amount of pressure or the type of music, don't hesitate to speak up.

Stone therapy is widely available in most spas and holistic centers. But aside from that, because of the wondrous pleasure it brings to your mind and body this is a service that is also available in beach resorts to make your vacation even more relaxing. Can you imagine a better place to be than to have a wonderful stone massage against the backdrop of dazzling ocean scenery?

But take note this is not a one time engagement thing that you can only have once a year. In fact, this is one kind of addiction that is not harmful to the body. A regular session of one to two times a month is really beneficial to your well-being. It is especially great for stressful days when all your muscles are tensed and tight and you just want to soothe your tired aching body.

Stone massage is indeed one of the best kinds of pleasure in life. And when you work so hard every single day, it surely is a nice break to have a relaxing hot stone therapy to relax your body and keep your mind off worries and anxiety.
