Our hot stone massage is one of a range of massages therapy treatments.
A Hot Stone Massage is a truly relaxing treatment using hot stones of varying sizes on parts of the body - from the forehead to between the toes - giving a deep massage and creating a sensation of warmth and comfort. The heat from the stones feels great and is also wholly therapeutic - helping detox the body and relaxing the nervous system. The stones used are smooth, volcanic basalt that retain their heat on the body for as long as possible.
Based upon traditional holistic massage techniques, hot and cold stones are used to massage the client. The stones may also be placed in strategic positions on top and beneath the body, to create a therapeutic and holistic effect. This will benefit both the area concerned and the person in general. Sweeping strokes of the warm stones release tension and promote energy flow to the body and spirit.

One stroke of hot stone massage is thought to be the equivalent to ten manual massage strokes, so results can be achieved more quickly and efficiently. The stones allow for deeper penetration of pressure and work upon an area. The heat from the stones permeates through the body causing vasodilation to occur. This will bring more oxygen and nutrients to the tissues and speed up the removal of waste products.
Treatments take place as with massages with the client undressed lying down.
