Hot Stuff…

Hot stone massage, which dates back to ancient Native American traditions, is a variation on classic massage therapy which is enjoyed by many and has become a premier treatment in top spas and health centres around the world.

During the treatment, heated smooth, flat stones are placed on key points on and underneath the body. The massage therapist may also hold the stones and use them to massage certain areas. Small stones are sometimes placed between the toes and others on the forehead and the abdomen. Once surrounded by hot stones, you will then be wrapped up in towels and blankets to keep you feeling cosy, warm and relaxed.

The heated basalt stones used during this treatment originate from volcanic rock which absorb and retain heat. Hot stone massage effects chemical, physical and spiritual healing within the mind, body and spirit, as well as being incredibly relaxing and warming. This helps to create feelings of balance  and harmony on all levels. The effects of the stones are therapeutic, relaxing, grounding, working at deep- tissue level, cleansing the whole system.
