Hot Stone/Cold Stone Therapy

Why this resource is helpful:

Quoted From:

"Heated stones are applied to lubricated tissue and may be placed or incorporated into Swedish massage techniques to promote circulation, relieve muscle tension and encourage relaxation. Cold stones may be applied in a similar fashion- but conversely will encourage vasoconstriction (blood moving away from local tissues). This promotes an analgesic effect and is best used for acute injuries, headaches, sinus pressure and local inflammation."
