hot and cold stone massage

Hot and cold has been used for many years, particularly in Sweden, to alternately stimulate the blood to the surface of the skin with the heat, and then encourage it back to the deeper layers and vital organs with the cold.  When used as a full body treatment, this hot / cold stimulation is very good for boosting the immune system and is a refreshing and revitalizing treatment.

Remedially, or as a part-body treatment, hot and cold is very good for treating injuries, by encouraging a flushing mechanism in the area, as blood is brought into and out of an area.  Blood is the body’s healer, bringing oxygen and nutrition and taking away waste products.  When an area is injured through accident, scarring or surgery, a hot and cold flushing can do a lot of good.

Hot and cold stone work is excellent on forearms, neck and shoulders to get congestion moving from repetitive strain injury caused, for example, by too much computer work or long distance driving .  Combined with myofascial release and trigger point therapy, these three elements are key in really helping arms to recover from the cycle of injury that can occur from sitting at a keyboard or dashboard all day. 

Cold stones can also be used on their own for reducing swelling immediately after injury, and reducing fluid pooling in the legs following long distance flights, pregnancy or simply a job where you stand on your feet all day.
