Acupressure or Meridian Massage
With Hot Stones
Please note: Bonnie is NOT a Registered Massage Therapist. This treatment is for relaxation purposes only.
This treatment is very relaxing and balancing. It is often helpful for those who do not like acupuncture needles, but still wish to benefit from the skills of a Traditional Chinese Medicine treatment. Bonnie may incorporate heated stones and Reiki into this treatment. A heated stone massage is a massage combined with the use of smooth, heated stones. The warmth of the stones seeps deep into the body, relaxing tense muscles and easing tension. Heated stone massage is extremely relaxing and soothing.
You usually start face down, with the practitioner working on your back, opening up the bladder meridian which runs down both sides of the spine. She may then massage you while holding heated stones or gua sha tools. A full-body massage is completed, including the arms, legs, shoulders, feet, neck and face. Acupuncture points and meridians will be worked to open up the flow of qi, circulation and lymphatic fluid.
Be sure to speak up if the stones are too warm or the pressure is too intense. The full massage approximately 50 minutes and 1 hour.
The benefits of this massage may include: releasing tight muscles, deep relaxation, improved sleep, increased circulation, reduction in inflammation, and improved immune function.
This can be a more gentle form of massage and can be tolerated more easily by those who are more sensitive or have chronic conditions, such as fibromyalgia, or stepped up for patients who require a deeper treatment.
