5 benefits of hot stone massage therapy

Relaxes muscles

Without heat, your muscles will be more tense and stiff, which can hinder the massage process. The added heat from the stones helps you relax. This allows your massage therapist to better manipulate your deeper tissues, which both releases tension and can relieve aches.

Stress management

The relaxation powers of hot stone massage not only affect you physically, but are known to have many mental benefits. You may find that as your body relaxes, it not only releases tension but can help manage your stress levels. Hot stone massage can help with symptoms of anxiety and depression, but should not be used as a substitute for other forms of treatment.

Better sleep

When you’re overtired or overstressed you can often have trouble sleeping. The intense relaxation, healing powers and stress-relief achieved through hot stone massage therapy has been linked to getting a better night’s sleep. This type of massage therapy is often advised for those suffering from insomnia alongside seeking medical advice.

Improves blood circulation

Before the massage begins, hot stones are placed on trigger points all over your body. The stones penetrate your deeper tissues, opening blood vessels along the way, and in turn improving circulation. This increased circulation can help in the recovery process after exercise and relieve other aches and pains.


It seems pretty generic, but built up stress over long periods of time can cause you to become emotionally fatigued. Relieving the stress with hot stone massage can boost you mentally, making you feel refreshed and rejuvenated.
