Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage combines the benefits of warm stones with various massage techniques to create a deeply relaxing and healing treatment. The heat of the stones penetrates to a deeper level, bringing about physiological changes as well as influencing the body’s internal energy flow; bringing balance to both mind and body. The massage is 10 times more effective than a normal massage. The warmth of these heated stones penetrates muscles and balances the nervous system like no other treatment.
The stones used are smooth, basalt river stones. They are better at absorbing and retaining heat than other stones due to their high iron content. They are placed in water and heated to the required temperature.
Smooth cool marble stones may also be used after the heat of the hot stones to help with muscular injury and inflammation.

What happens during a treatment?
Before your treatment a full and confidential consultation will be taken to assess your needs.
During your hot stone treatment, warm stones of various sizes are placed on certain areas of your body, while others are used for deep tissue massage. The heat from the stones feels great and highly therapeutic – helping detox the body and relaxing the nervous system.
Cool marble stones may also be used – mainly on the back and legs – to refresh the body after the heat or on areas of inflammation.
Please note that I only see male clients upon referral.
