Feeling good is good for you
Described as comforting and deeply relaxing, this massage is similar to a traditional massage, but in addition to the therapist’s hands, various sizes and shapes of volcanic basalt stones are heated and applied to the body. The gliding of the heated oiled stones along the body creates a relaxing sensation, while simultaneously warming the joints and tissues. Aromatherapy essential oils are used blended to the client’s choice. The effect on the physical body of the warm stones is far greater than manual massage.
We have past civilisations to thank for hot stones, when they were used for healing by Indians, Chinese and Native Americans to name but a few. Stones from riverbeds were warmed and placed along the energy centres of the body, relaxing muscles and relieving tension. Lava rocks were wrapped in leaves, using them as pain relief.
Hot stones can be incorporated with other treatments, for example, reflexology, facials and Warm Bamboo. The hot stones relax the muscles, ready for the bamboo treatment. There is the option of cooler marble and marine stones, bringing a new approach within your treatment. They create a distinct refreshing experience and may help to alleviate any inflammation and swelling, which should be checked by a medical professional prior to treatment. We are happy to offer you a taster with your treatment.
