Precautions to take when considering receiving hot stone massage
There are certain things you need to keep in mind about hot stone massage. Firstly, you need to understand that this type of massage cannot be performed on everybody. It is a good idea to obtain the approval of a doctor before you start the massage.
Special care should be taken when administering it to pregnant women. Moreover, you need to ensure that the stones don’t get too hot and end up scalding the skin. Jacob encourages feedback, whether the pressure is too much, just right or the area is too tender too work on. Also stay tuned to the heat as it may feel good but can burn even if you do not think it is too hot. During the consultation please let the massage therapist Jacob know of any particular tender areas you have noticed before.
