The gradual introduction of heat into the muscle tissue encourages blood flow to the region. Simultaneously this calms the nervous system. By allowing the massage to ease its way deep into the muscle tissue it thus reduces the propensity of the pain receptors of the body to engage a defensive reaction.
Traditionally hot stone treatments used the application of basalt volcanic stones. However The Wavestone® has been specifically designed with Sports Massage treatments in mind. The smooth curves of the stone contour ergonomically over the muscle tissue providing a deeply relaxing and very effective massage. The WaveStone can therefore facilitate the therapist to treat muscles that are contracted, fatigued and tender returning them to a healthier, more responsive and elastic state.

- aiding circulation
