Hot Stone Therapy

Now that the holidays are over, you may be feeling ready to take a break from all the hustle and bustle. A hot new massage therapy may be the key to relaxation.

Hot stones, heated to 120 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit, and then lightly cooled before being placed on the body.

Therapists say the procedure warms the muscle and allows you to go much deeper than the point of pain or a tight muscle.

While hot stone therapy is a new trend in massage therapy, the practice actually has been around for thousands of years.

Sessions last just an hour and are ideal for people who suffer from Arthritis, the chronic pain condition Fibromyalgia, or any kind of muscle tension.

Check with spas in the local area to see if they offer this soothing treatment.
