Hot Stone Massage

Hot Stone Massage provides a deep massage using smooth, flat and heated basalt stones that can also be placed at key points on the body. It is a wonderfully relaxing therapy that is used to create balance within the body.  The direct heat of the stones in Hot Stone Therapy relaxes muscles, allowing the therapist to access the deeper muscle layers.  Combining hot stone protocols with a full body massage provides a very healing and effective experience.

The benefits of a Hot Stone Massage include:

  • Eases muscle stiffness and melts away tension;  

  • Increase in circulation and metabolism;

  • A sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain;

  • Enhances the immune system by increasing the release of toxins;

  • Reduces stress and fatigue;

  • Promotes deep relaxation.

What to expect at your first Hot Stone Massage:

  • You will be made to feel at ease when you arrive;

  • Before using each hot stone, I will cat paw test it lightly on your body to check the temperature of the stone is agreeable to you;
