Hot stone massage is a special type of massage that uses flat, smooth, and heated stones to treat various health issues. When deciding on your next massage, choose the hot stone massage in Dubai at the Best Spa and Massage Center.
The use of heated stones for therapeutic purposes can be traced to thousands of years ago. Studies show that heated stones were used in the ancient healing tradition of Ayurveda in India about 5000 years ago. Ancient Chinese used this therapy 2000 years ago to improve the functioning of the internal organs. Research shows that stones for healing purposes have also been used in North America, South America, Europe, and Egypt.
Hot stone therapy in recent years commenced with the LaStone Therapy, which was created by Mary Nelson in 1993. Today, hot stone therapy is used as part of deep-tissue massage, facials, pedicures, and manicures.
What can you expect during a Hot Stone Massage?
Book an appointment at the Best Massage and Spa in Dubai for a Hot Stone Massage. It is better to reach the Center early and discuss with the therapist if you have any medical issues. Do not have a heavy meal or consume alcohol before the massage. Once you are taken to the massage room you will be asked to undress according to your comfort level and lie on a massage table facing downward. The therapist places warm, oiled stones on many pressure points across your body. They are sometimes even placed between your toes.
The stones are sometimes heated to 145 degrees Fahrenheit. The therapist usually alternates between placing hot basalt stones and colder, basalt stones. The warm stones relax the muscles, work on muscle knots and spasms. You will be transported into a deeply relaxed state. Do not hesitate to tell the therapist if the stones are too hot for you to handle.
