Massaging your face with hot stones will melt away tension and fatigue. Warm, smooth basalt stones are used to gently massage the face and neck, as circulation is stimulated and toxins are eliminated, but other benefits include firming, toning and excess fluid removal. Hot stone facial therapy helps diminish puffiness of the eyes and tension lines. Daily stress often results in tension buildup in the muscles. This gentle facial massage can help relax tight and drawn muscles, decreasing the lines that they form. When used in conjunction with cold, marble stones, the skin and muscles of the face are skillfully introduced to swift change of temperature. This boosts the cardio-vascular system; enables the skin and muscle to receive more oxygen and nutrients and flushes toxins out through the lymphatic system. Facial massage can also decrease anxiety and can improve a negative mood.
