Hot Stone massage is a specialist massage that uses smooth, flat, heated basalt stones placed on points throughout the body.
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.
the hot basalt stones can help to increase blood supply to the area, reduce muscle contraction and pain, promote relaxation and increase ease of movement, 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 , leaving you feeling stress-free and uplifted.
A thorough consultation is taken prior to treatments to ensure your needs are addressed.
