Hand and Stone Massages

Shila Abhyanga: The Ancient Techniques are Still Practiced Today for a Reason!

Hand and Stone Massages

The practice of Ayurveda encompasses many different types of therapies and massages. One such method that has gained massive popularity throughout the modern world is known as Shila Abhyanga, or more commonly referred to as the hot stone massage. You may have heard friends and loved ones rave about this specialty technique, but our experts at Evolv Wellness are here to thoroughly inform you of the benefits involved with our Hand and Stone Massages.

First and foremost, what exactly is a hot stone massage? This massage method takes a unique variant on the classic deep tissue massage and incorporates the use of smooth, flat stones that are placed on key points throughout the body. Your therapist may also utilize those stones to massage certain sections and provided added pressure where needed. Prior to your session, you will have essential oils applied to the skin to open up the marma, or physical and energetic points on the body. This will assist in dissolving pent up stress that you have been carrying.

Then, the stones that are utilized for the massage are heated in water to a specific temperature that makes them ideal for the purposes of the session. The circular stones usually vary in size and are firmly glided over the muscles. Individuals are drawn to this massaging method because it provides tons of fantastic benefits. Individuals who seek regular Hand and Stone Massages experience restorative qualities in both the body and mind, have their circulatory system stimulated to soften and relax the muscles, release toxins that are typically locked within the system, and are able to reach a level of deep and complete relaxation.

Hot Stone Therapy

Many individuals who are devoted to Ayurvedic therapies and dedicate themselves to a holistic lifestyle strongly believe that therapies such as the hot stone massage are essential to living a full life. Especially in the current fast-paced lifestyle many of us lead, it is important to set aside time each week to seek some sort of release from the daily grind. Because our society is so driven by technology, we often find ourselves disconnected from nature’s healing qualities. The purpose of hot stone therapy is to reconnect you with the simplest parts of life and seek your organic rhythm.
