Hot Stone Massage
Hot Stone Massage is a form of massage therapy that follows the same principles of Swedish Massage with the addition of heated stones, which helps lead to deep relaxation. Adding heat to specific areas on the body enhances the feelings of relaxation and peace. Recommended in particular for individuals suffering from fibromyalgia, arthritis or other chronic pain. The penetrating effects of the heated stones allows the massage to be delivered without excessive pressure.
Hot Stone Massage is a specialty massage that uses smooth, heated stones. The stones used are often basalt, a black volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat well. The heat helps to ease tension which in turn helps tight muscles release while you relax. It is a deeply soothing, relaxing form of massage. The stones can be used either as an extension of the therapist’s hands, or placed on certain points on the body to warm and loosen tight muscles while balancing energy centers, leaving the therapist free to massage other parts of the body. Hot Stone is the perfect choice for customers who may prefer a lighter touch in their massages, or who simply want a pampering massage with soothing warmth
Deep Tissue Massage in Virginia Beach
If you’re suffering from chronic muscle tension or lingering pain from a previous injury, deep tissue massage may be the answer. Focusing on the connective tissue rather than superficial muscles, deep tissue massage is specifically intended to release muscle tension and alleviate painful knots. Deep tissue massage can be an excellent way to break up scar tissue from previous injuries and help the body release toxins, promoting healthier blood and oxygen circulation.
Relief from Painful Muscle Tension
Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. the focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).
A study in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that people's blood pressure fell after a single 45 to 60 minute deep tissue massage. Additionally, a 2010 meta-analysis in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry found that massage modalities like deep tissue reduce stress hormone levels and heart rate while boosting mood and relaxation by triggering the release of oxytocin and serotonin. At Asian Touch Spa in Virginia Beach, deep tissue massage is just one of the ways in which we help our clients experience relief from pain and muscle tension. Our skilled, well-qualified massage therapists will work closely with you to develop a treatment plan that’s tailored to your individual needs. Over time, you may experience increased mobility, decreased pain, and improved overall health and wellness as the result of your massage treatment.
