Hawaiian Hot Stone Massage is the soothing application of hot stones to promote a deeper muscle relaxation by expanding the blood vessels on tender areas with applied heat. This therapeutic modality improves circulation and energetic flow throughout the body. The hot stones have a sedative effect that allows relief of chronic pain, release of stress, promotes relaxation, aids in detoxification, stimulates the immune system and improves digestion. The Hot Stone therapeutic session is combined with a full body relaxation massage.
Whether vacationing or in constant movement from car rides, planes or taxis, to simply being on the persistent move throughout your day to day life working to get things accomplished, you may find yourself in a stressed or anxious state and mood. This is due to one of our 3 doshas (basic constitutions) called Vata, rising in the body.
Vata is easily exacerbated by excess movement, which is what happens when we travel. Long plane rides, taxi cabs and exploring new areas can leave you feeling unsettled, ungrounded, anxious or even stressed. Vata is made of the elements Ether and Air. When vitiated, it presents itself in the physical body as qualities such as dry skin, spacey thoughts, cold (hands, feet), a lightness or ungrounded feeling within the self and possibly tremors or shaking within the body.
ALOHA SHANTHIS AYUREVEDIC-HAWAIIAN HOT STONE THERAPY
Hawaiian Hot Stone therapy is the perfect treatment to aid your high Vata, reducing anxiety and stress. The soothing application of Hot stones combats the Vata quality of “cold” by warming the tissues with the Hot Hawaiian Stones, promoting deeper muscle relaxation by expanding the blood vessels in tender or stress “holding” areas. The hot stones also provide an extremely grounding affect, seeing as you can’t get more grounded than stones!
Warm Oil is used during the massage to bring balance to the dry & rough-high Vata qualities that can manifest in our tissue layers as dry or cracked skin. Hawaiian Hot Stone Therapy calms the bodies parasympathetic nervous system to slow down its anxious movements, aiding to ease the mind chatter. This modality allows relief of chronic pain, release of stress, promotes relaxation, aids in detoxification, stimulates the immune system, improves digestion and is combined with a Full Body Relaxation Massage.
