The use of hot, moist towels in massage therapy, also known as hydrothermal therapy, can help tight muscles to relax, soothes irritated nerve endings and increases circulation. Therapists can achieve more results during a limited treatment session period by applying hot, moist towels to one area of the patient’s body while manually massaging other areas, then switching as needed. Hot towels can be used in areas that would be unable to tolerate the pressure and friction common to manual massage, and the use of moist heat is recommended by the Arthritis Foundation to help to relax muscles and increase circulation in areas made tender by that condition.

If you’ve had a pedicure, then you’re familiar with the benefits of exfoliation. Foot calluses can develop due to daily pressure from workouts, walking and wearing those truly fashionable, but less-than-comfortable shoes that you adore. But after a little apricot scrub and a session with a pumice stone, your feet can feel soft, smooth and sandal-ready. While you wouldn’t employ the exact same methods on your face, or even your arms and legs, the rest of your body certainly can benefit from a little exfoliating.
