Debunking Three Hot Stone Massage Myths
When it comes to hot stone massage, there is quite a few myths to debunk. We have heard them all throughout the years, and take it from us, almost none of them are true. Three of the most common myths that surround hot stone massage include:
Anyone Can Give a Hot Stone Massage
Some people believe that because a hot stone massage involves the transfer of heat through a stone that it is a massage therapy that any person can give. This couldn’t be further from the truth, and the simple fact of the matter is that hot stone massage is the one type of massage therapy that probably requires the most professional training. The reason for this is simple. Yes, applying heat during a massage can be beneficial but applying extremely hot stones directly to your skin is not a good idea. In fact, doing so could result in first or second degree burns. Don’t take this chance, leave it to the experts.
The Stones in a Hot Stone Massage must be Flat and Black
Again, this is a common misconception. The fact that most fancy, exclusive spas use smooth, black basalt stones for their hot stone massage does not mean that they are the only type of stones that fit this purpose. The truth of the matter is that this type of massage is just as effective using any smooth type of stone. What’s more, chances are you will also end up paying a lot more for your hot stone basalt massage.
Hot Stone Massages Do Not Need Oil
People whose only idea of a hot stone massage is from a catalogue or TV ad may believe that hot stone massages must be dry. This is not true and oil is still very necessary to ensure a smooth rub. At Asia BC Spa, we use a grapeseed oil to ensure an optimal treatment.
