Hot Stone Massages From Your Bloomington Chiropractor
Tension in your muscles and injuries to your body may impact your ability to engage in normal activities. When you have pain and want to address your discomfort, you must start with clarifying the solutions. A chiropractor may recommend massage as part of a treatment plan to encourage healing, reduce tension or address a specific type of injury to your body.
What is Hot Stone Massage?
Hot stone massage refers to a specialty massage that focuses on deep relaxation and reducing tension in the muscles throughout your back and body. It uses hot stones as well as the massage therapist's hands to treat a specific location on your body.
In most cases, the treatment works on your back and the heats help warm up the area. By using hot stones, licensed therapists can work more effectively. The heat helps your body relax and makes it easier to massage the deep tissues within your body.
Advantages of the Massage
The advantages of a hot stone massage depend on your situation and current health. A chiropractor in our clinic evaluates your situation and then determines when to consider the treatment.
Common benefits of the treatment include:
- Greater relaxation throughout your body
- Reduced muscle tension
- Reduced pain in your muscles, which may relate to injuries or stress
- Greater sleep at night
- Improved immune health
Hot stones make it easier to gain the health benefits associated with massage. It warms up your muscles as the therapist moves the stones over the area or allows the stones to rest for a short period. The massage then works out the remaining tension in your muscles and encourages natural healing.
When to Consider Massage and Chiropractic Care in Bloomington
Chiropractic care in Bloomington focuses on natural healing and recovery. You want to consider professional care after an accident or when you have chronic pain that interferes with your normal activities. You may also benefit from the treatment when you have concerns about your health and want to address specific symptoms.
We may also suggest hot stone massage when injuries to your muscles cause tension that interferes with other treatments. It may help improve your mobility when the cause of poor mobility is deep tissue injuries or deep tissue tension due to the pain of an injury. You also benefit from the treatment when you have persistent pain that stems from your normal activities, an injury or an accident. Do not wait for treatment when you have severe pain or the pain persists for an extended period.
Chiropractic care uses a variety of strategies to improve your health by healing the muscles and bones within your body. When the cause of your pain relates to the muscles rather than the spine and skeletal system, you want to take steps to address the injuries or cause of your pain.
