Geothermail (Hot and Cold Stones)

Geothermal

Geothermal 1h x 75 €

 

This technique uses hot and cold stones so it is a very harmonized massage, with the aim of restoring the psychic-physical balance. In our centre we combine this technique with Aromatherapy, the combination of the heat of the stones, together with the aroma that comes from the essential oils, make the delight and comfort of this good massage.

 

The contrasts of temperature is appropriate for each case in particular, since in the balancing process, there are those who need to relax and who need a more revitalizing treatment, depending on the emotional moment in which the user is thus applied.

In addition, the temperature contrast of cold and hot stones, activates the circulatory system, increasing blood flow, which favours both the nutrition of tissues and their detoxification.

 

The massage is carried out using hot volcanic stones and cold marble. The combination of cold and heat allows to obtain emotional and psychological benefits. Hot stones increase blood circulation, provides muscle relaxation effects, calming the pain. Cold stones cause vasoconstriction and act in acute inflammatory processes.

 

BENEFITS

 

Music generates a response in the human brain, a relaxing melody allows to reach a state of general well-being.

Hot stones increase blood circulation and cell metabolism in the treated areas.

Cold stones cause vasoconstriction, release of histamine and substances that act in acute inflammatory processes.

 

PHYSIOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF MASSAGE WITH HOT STONES:

 

Each time a temperature change occurs, the human body sets in motion all of its thermoregulation mechanisms that trigger a series of reactions to oppose temperature variations, above or below its physiological limits.

 

The effects of short-term heat are:

 

Dilation of arterioles and capillaries to eliminate heat.

Vasoconstriction of blood vessels.

Hyperemia

Muscle relaxation due to the increase in blood supply.

Increase in skin temperature.

Decreased cardiac activity.

 

Long-term effects:

 

Increased sweating due to the caloric loss caused by the evaporation of water.

Activation of the parasympathetic nervous system

Increase in cellular metabolism.

Decreased respiratory rate.

Sedation effect on the nervous system.

 

 

 

PHYSIOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF MASSAGE WITH COLD STONES:

 

In order for the body to react to the use of cold, the temperature of the stones must be below 24º C. The first reaction is an increase in basal metabolism. If the reaction lasts, chills appear to cause an increase in body temperature. Its application is indicated in contusions, acute inflammatory states, edema, trauma, and bruising.

 

The effects of cold in the short term are:

 

Activation of the sympathetic nervous system

Muscular excitation

Activation of homeostasis to keep the internal temperature of the organism stable

Slowing of peristaltic movement and digestive functions

Increased respiratory rate and oxygenation of the lungs

 

The long-term effects of cold are:

 

The digestive process is activated

The respiratory rhythm is normalized

Increased metabolism at the expense of carbohydrates and fats

Disposal of waste products

Reactive hyperemia in peripheral vessels
