Relaxing into a perfectly cozy Zanctuary Massage Center table is quite possibly the most ahhhhhhh moment you can have. Knowing you are about to experience the best massage in the industry provides a mental state of bliss that lets your body release all tension and stress. This is the moment you work so hard for.

There is only one thing that can make this moment more relaxing: hot stone massage. An ancient Chinese technique, hot stone massage is the perfect modality to soothe, relax and de-stress on the massage table.

A slightly less known massage technique that is nonetheless extremely effective and relaxing is one called the Hot Stone Massage. This massage technique, which hails from China, involves the heating of basalt stones up to around 125-135 degrees just before you are ready for your session.

Your massage therapist will first warm up your body utilizing various Swedish Massage techniques that prepare for what is to come. With the initial warmup done, your therapist will then use the warm stones as an extension or replacement of their hands, to massage your muscles with. The magic behind this form of massage therapy is that the heated stones will warm the body overall, but more importantly, that warmth will spread deeper into the muscles, tendons, and fascia, which in turn will cause a natural release of tension and stress in ways which the massage therapist could not attain. This release is attained without the use of added or extra pressure so the overall feeling experienced by the client is at the same time extremely relaxing and therapeutic.

Many people do not realize the importance and overall effect that good, strong blood flow throughout the body can create. The benefits are many; from elevated mood through the invigorated circulation, to loosening of muscles. These are just some of the benefits achieved from the use of the hot stone massage technique. Beyond that, it has also been known to speed up recovery from a recent head cold, as well as just allowing your body (and mind) to escape the day-to-day grind and stress that accompanies your daily routine.  It is also used by clients to find relief from chronic pains and aches that they consistently suffer from.

Because we want our clients to be able to relax completely, experiencing a feeling of peace and calm both mentally and bodily during their time with us, we always make our Vancouver Massage Palm Beach guarantee very clear – if your massage does not meet or exceed your expectations, the next one is on us. The combination of relaxing hot stones and the industry’s highest rated massage is a stress-relieving dream come true.

The moment you enter the Vancouver Massage Center, you’ll feel your entire being already priming itself for the best massage experience in the region. But we’ve decided to offer our clients something even better – Our new essential oil aromatherapy scents, which deliver an even greater level of relaxation, vitality and calm to your senses.

From early culture who lived in harmony with the earth for thousands of years, we know that Essential Oils are known for their benefits to both body and soul/mind. These highly concentrated oils are derived from the extracts of roots, seeds, leaves, or blossoms of carefully selected plants.

Some of the benefits listed for essential oils, in the physical realm are pain reduction, improvement of blood flow and circulation, a lowering of blood pressure which eases the strain on your heart, and more. But they are just as effective in therapy dealing with emotional calming, or de-stressing, fighting depression, mood swings and creating a deeper sense of calm and harmony.

Essential oils have been used for therapeutic purposes now for nearly 6,000 years, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center*. And while we at Zanctuary Massage Center cannot claim the same number of years of using essential oils in our massage therapy session for our clients, we can proudly state that our decade-plus use of the oils has kept effective old world traditions intact and helping our clients to achieve an even greater appreciation for self-care and more joy in life.

When choosing to add our aromatherapy oils to your massage therapy session, our studio will mix the oils into your massage lotion in order to create the perfect experience, introducing those unique benefits that the oils are meant to provide.
