Cold stones are quickly becoming the hottest thing on the market. Spas and manicure businesses are starting to offer this amazing technique all over the world.

The cold stones are applied to an area of inflammation and as the cold removes the heat from your body it helps to reduce the swelling. The cold also helps move new blood into that area of the body to help improve circulation. With this renewed blood flow, after the cold stone is removed, it can reduce the strain that was caused when the blood flow was impeded.

There are different kinds of cold stone therapy. The easy one is for swelling. This is where the cold stone is placed on your body after being refrigerated, and remains there for a short time. Other techniques include a therapist using a cold stone hand tool on your face. There are even techniques where you can use both cold and hot stones together.
