Hot and Cold Stone Massage
"I feel so good. Thank you so much for this amazing treatment! You are a diamond."
"A deeply restorative and regenerating treatment which leaves you feeling as mellow as a marshmallow"
Stone massage dates back more than 3000 years, when ancient civilisations believed that hot stones were beneficial for cleansing the body, relaxing the heart, grounding the soul and soothing the mind. The same principles hold to this day and combine Thermotherapy (the use of heat application) with traditional massage strokes, to create a profound, relaxing and healing treatment.
Using precisely heated basalt stones, cooled marble stones and chakra crystals, this treatment works on releasing muscle tension, improving circulation, effecting pain relief (muscular and emotional) and providing a deep sense of overall wellbeing.
The placement of the hot stones can reduce localised pain, muscle spasm and muscle stiffness whilst increasing vasodilation (local inflammation response) - the heat from the stones enabling the massage therapist to work into the deeper muscle layers.
