A dynamic treatment addressing deep seated tension, soreness and pain in the upper body – back, neck and shoulders. Though very relaxing, the focus is on areas of the body that are prone to the stresses and strains of everyday life. As the heat from the stones penetrate into deeper body tissues, blood vessels open, improving the circulation to the affected muscles – a welcome relief for chronic aches and pains.

HOT STONE FUSION MASSAGE FAQS
HOW DOES A HOT STONE FUSION TREATMENT WORK?
Based on the principles of hydrotherapy, the combination of the embodied heat and coolness of the stones penetrate muscle tension at the deepest level, allowing the muscles to relax 4-5 times faster than a standard body massage with the effects lasting for up to 72 hours – calming the mind, warming the body and giving welcome relief from the effects of physical and mental stress.
As the cool stones decrease inflammation, pain, spasm, puffiness and swelling, the same area is then treated with hot basalt stones, increasing blood supply to the area, reducing muscle contraction and pain, promoting relaxation and increasing ease of movement and considerably speeding up the healing process and injury recovery time.
As well as relieving muscular tension, the therapeutic nature of the treatments enables them to address a wide range of conditions, specific issues or may be experienced as a whole body treatment. It is an excellent all round therapy and a luxurious treat for post natal recovery, leaving you feeling stress-free and uplifted.
