You know you’re in trouble when you wake up face down in the pillow with your toes pointed toward the ceiling. You may be a little bit stressed, and you could probably use some help relaxing. Use this deal to Agona Center of Wellness and receive a 90-minute hot stone massage, a $95 value, for just $47.50.
Hot stone massage is a variation of traditional massage techniques that engages the use of smooth basalt stones. The smooth, rounded stones are heated in water to an ideal temperature and placed in optimum areas on the body, including the spinal column, the palms of the hands and in between the toes. They’re also used as massage implements to help the therapist deeply massage taut and knotted muscles with minimal discomfort. The heat in turn spreads warmth throughout the body, promoting muscle relaxation and improved circulation. This method of therapy effectively eliminates stress and tension and many have reported it helps relieve symptoms of depression, insomnia and arthritic stiffness.
