Cold Stone Therapy
Now we all have heard and maybe even tried Hot Stones. We know how good it can feel and the benefits it can give us. But now wait, what about cold stone therapy? Sounds scary if you hate the cold or if cold can seem ...maybe not relaxing. I want you to take a deep breath because this information on cold therapy is going to blow your mind. Cold stone massage can be preform with hot stones as well; this is called thermal contrasting. Cold stone massage can help lower stress levels, improve circulation, and soothe inflammation to treat a variety of maladies. Most people can tolerate cold stones, so don't go in thinking you will feel cold. It works!
Let start and say, cold can be placed on your skin. When its placed on your skin, it triggers vasoconstriction, which is the narrowing of the blood vessels. When the stones are removed, your vessels will dilate again. This is such a great thing because it will supply affected areas with fresh blood and oxygen. Benefits of Cold Stone Therapy
