We are pleased to announce that KGC Therapy now offers hot stone massage! With our Canadian winter fast approaching, this is a great way to warm up and relax.
Hot stone massage is a massage technique that has been used for thousands of years by numerous cultures around the world. It incorporates the use of heated stones that are placed on different points along the body, with or without pressure, for ultimate muscle relaxation. Health benefits include relaxation, pain relief, and increased circulation.
Hot stone massage is suitable for almost anyone, with a few exceptions. You should not have a hot stone massage if you are pregnant (it requires you to lie on your stomach for an extended period of time), have any form of metal in your body (for example, a metal joint replacement or pins), have a skin condition (such as psoriasis, eczema, boils, etc.), have osteoporosis or a similar bone inflammation condition, have recently undergone chemotherapy or radiation, or have had a recent hemorrhage. Please note that this list is not exhaustive and if you are wondering whether hot stone massage is suitable for you, you can give us a call and we will help you discern that.
We offer 60-minute and 90-minute hot stone massage appointments here at KGC Therapy. Give yourself the gift of self-care this Christmas season and book your appointment today!
