Hot stone massage is a deep massage that uses soothing oils, warm basalt and sometimes cold marble stones to relax your muscles. Choose from a back massage or an indulgent full-body massage.
What is hot stone massage good for?
This type of complementary massage therapy warmth and cold – a technique which has proven beneficial to soothe an aching body. There’s a method behind the madness of leaping from a toasty sauna into an icy pool, and hot stone massage uses the same principle.
Hot stone massage therapy combines relaxing warmth and refreshing coolness to encourage the body to detox and heal. This also increases lymph flow and helps to flush out waste.
Heat relaxes your body in a short space of time, so your massage therapist can focus on a deep working of the tissues using both hot stones and hand strokes.
Hot stones also increase your sense of relaxation and calm. They are coated in fragrant oil which is smoothed gently onto your body, and each stone in turn is worked by your therapist’s hands. The heated stones are placed on the chakra points to align and balance the energy centres, benefiting the whole body and mind.
