Hot Stones Massage

What is a Hot Stones Massage?
This specialist sought after treatment goes beyond the physical experience of typical massage and enters deeper dimensions of relaxation, health and well- being. The therapist warms up the body with traditional Swedish Massage, and then massages the client whilst holding the heated basalt stones as well as placing the stones in specific points to improve the flow of energy in the body. The heat relaxes muscles, giving a deep penetration to muscle tissue helping to loosen and sooth tightened congested muscles without the need for deep pressure. This is a beautifully relaxing and rejuvenating therapy, therapeutic for the mind, body and soul.

Why are cool marble stones sometimes used?
Cool stones have a de-congesting, soothing and are mostly used on isolated areas where the client has inflammation or muscle injury.

Cool stones will:

  • Refresh and stimulate the mind
  • Help to relieve tissue congestion (sinuses)
  • Soothe irritation

The combination of relaxing warmth and refreshing coolness is thought to
encourage the body to detox and heal, increasing lymph flow and helping to flush
out waste.
