Bliss and calm
Hot Stone massage is a very restful and calming massage.
Warm stones are heated to a temperature of approximately 45C. Each stone is then placed strategically on the body. The warmth from the stone can penetrate deep into the muscles creating a pleasant, comfortable warmth and relaxation.
Leaving the heat of the stones working their magic, another part of the body is massaged with warm essential oil and long, calm and circular strokes using stones and hands. Then the massage therapist returns to the deposited rocks, leaving the part just massaged to enjoy the warm rocks that remain.
Hot stone massage has all the benefits of a regular relaxation body massage. Besides deep relaxation, it causes circulation of fluids and transpiration and stimulates the processes of detoxifying, healing, relaxing and awareness. Through the caring action of heat, it is very effective massage for relieving stress, tension and even pain.
The combination of heat and motion ensures to get deeper into the soft tissue, which makes the massage effective to create depth or applied on trigger points and pressure points. The weight of the stone causes a certain pressure simulating a prolonged compression or stretching.
By imposing the stones at specific spots, the thermal effect can purposefully be used on cold spots, problems area or specific spots such as chakras and meridians which we offer in our combo of reflexology and hot stone.
The stones used are smooth basalt stones from Tibet. Basalt is a hard and ferruginous volcanic rock with a high density. The stones ensure that the heat is well kept within the stone.
Hot Stone massage is an effective and rejuvenating massage making you feel super relaxed, and above all are a blessing to enjoy!
