Hot Stone therapy is an exceptionally relaxing and effective treatment. Stone therapy massage provides a deep massage to the whole body as well as concentrated areas.
Hot basalt and sometimes cold marble stones are used during the treatment which is tailored to the individual client. First warm stones are placed on or under the body to relax, comfort and deliver deep heat ; this allows a deeper and more effective massage as heat penetrates the body and relaxes the muscles, reducing pain or discomfort, and boosting the healing process.
The whole body is then massaged using warm oiled stones in comfortable strokes. Essential oils further enhance the therapeutic benefits and encourage an elevated sense of relaxation and well being. Sometimes cold stones are used if there is muscular injury and inflammation. Warm stones expand the blood vessels, helping to move blood faster round the body, sedating the nervous system while application of cold stones stimulates the nervous system by causing the blood vessels to contract and increasing the lymph flow and removal of waste materials from body.
