What is Hot Stone Massage?
Hot stone massage is an ancient therapy that uses warmed volcanic stones to deeply relax the mind, body and spirit. The warmth of the stones works deep into the muscles, allowing the release of tension.
Hot stone massage is an incredibly soothing treatment that helps you achieve a greater level of relaxation. It is often said that one stroke with a stone is worth ten with the hands and that hot stone massage is ten times deeper and more effective than traditional massage.
What Happens During a Treatment?
After discussing your treatment aims I will work intuitively to select a personalised blend of essential oils just for you. Hot stones will be used to massage your body in slow, relaxing movements using a combination of techniques including holistic/Swedish massage, lymphatic drainage and acupressure. Stones may be placed on areas of your body such as the chakra points to help balance the flow of energy. Cold marble stones may also be used on certain areas to help increase the flow of lymph and the removal of toxins. Alternating between hot and cold stones is especially helpful for areas of inflammation and muscle injuries.
