HOT STONE MASSAGE
We offer hot stone massage as a therapeutic and restorative treatment. We can also, where desired, incorporate hot stones into our soft tissue therapy and sports massage treatments to give you a deep, relaxing and effective treatment.
During the treatment hot stones are used to release muscular tension. The combination of heat from the stones and deep massage strokes helps to increase circulation and improve blood flow to your muscles. This helps with healing, calming the nervous system and reducing pain. Stones are also placed on the body to allow the heat to sink deep into you, encouraging muscles to soften and release tension in areas hands cannot access.
Because your body is relaxed and circulation is increased you will leave the treatment room feeling like a new person.
We always work within your comfort levels, so while we say “hot stones”, we never apply the stones if they are too hot for you – and we appreciate that everybody’s perception of temperature differs. As with all of our treatments, communication is maintained throughout and we listen and respond to how your body reacts; your comfort and safety is paramount.

The natural basalt stones we use require time to heat up gradually therefore it isn’t feasible to provide shorter treatments.
