The groundhog has spoken, and that means 6 more weeks of winter. We recommend taking the chill out of winter with a hot stone massage from Xhale Salon~Spa. Hot stone massage therapy melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness, increases circulation and metabolism. The premise behind hot stone massage therapy is that the direct heat of the stones relaxes muscles, allowing the therapist access to the deeper muscle layers. The hot stones have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation. Hot stone massage is not appropriate if you have diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, or are on medication that thins your blood. You shouldn’t get a hot stone massage if you are pregnant or have a sunburn. Come into Xhale today for your relaxing hot stone massage.
