Hot Stone Massage

The concept of massage therapy using stones has been practiced in different cultures for many years. Tribal Healers and Village wise women used rocks from the riverbeds and warmed them either in hot coals or hot water. By then placing the hot stones on cloth on the body and arranging them along the energy points of the body, this would help to relax the muscles and reduce pain or discomfort, and therefore support the healing process. The placing of the stones is often followed by a holistic massage, which results in a deeper and more intense treatment. Hot stone massage has a number of reported therapeutic benefits, including:

  • Stress and anxiety reduction
  • Pain relief
  • Muscle relaxation
  • Toxin release
  • Mental clarity
  • Reduced depression symptoms
  • Increased metabolism
  • Improved circulation
  • Insomnia prevention

Cupping Massage

Cupping is an ancient medical treatment, its Chinese roots dating back thousands of years. Egyptian, Greek, Roman and Middle Eastern cultures also have ancient records of the practice. In cupping, suction cups of varying sizes are attached to the body. The suction draws stagnant blood to the surface of the skin and improves blood circulation through the tissues, which can speed healing. Research has found cupping may benefit conditions such as:

  • Releasing tight, contracted muscle tissue
  • Pain reduction
  • Joint mobilization
  • Lymph drainage
  • Detoxification
  • Scar tissue reduction
  • Cellulite reduction
  • Skin toning and firming
  • Weight loss assistance
  • Athletic performance enhancement
  • Pre- and post-operative therapy to shorten recovery time

Gua Sha/Scraping Massage

Gua sha roughly translates into English as “scraping away fever.” The traditional Chinese practice of gua sha involves stroking the skin with a stiff instrument made of stone, jade, bone, or horn. Chinese people use these devices and techniques in homes and clinics to treat a variety of conditions. Gua sha is similar to massage and acupressure, but it focuses directly on increasing blood flow beneath the surface of the skin. This heightened circulation can lead to a number of noticeable healing effects in the body. By boosting the immune system and reducing inflammation, gua sha practitioners help those in their care cope with various conditions, including:

  • Pain and stiffness
  • Fever and chill
  • Neck and back pain
  • Flu and bronchitis
  • Earaches
  • Migraine headaches
  • Allergic inflammation
  • Asthma, coughing, and wheezing
  • Nausea
