What is it and how does it work?

Specially handpicked volcanic rocks are heated and used by me to massage your aches and pains away using a technique called effleurage and petrissage. Pain and fatigue are alleviated providing deep relief to your body.

Calm alternating hot and cool volcanic rocks are extremely effective in releasing tight tense muscles and improve your confidence and sense of wellbeing.

When Hot Stones Massage is being applied it makes contact with your returning blood supply and helps remove toxins which can cause pain, discomfort and sluggishness. Removing this normal metabolic waste in the body will also help reduce cellulite build up and help keep your muscles toned.

The benefits of Hot Stone Massage

  • Deep relaxation, the warmth relaxes both physically and mentally
  • The heat from the stones is transferred to the body by conduction and it may reach up to 3cm into the muscle
  • Stress is reduced, relieving mental and physical fatigue
  • Circulation is improved and muscles have an increased blood supply, improving function
  • Toxins and waste are eliminated more quickly
  • The warmth can relieve pain in muscles and joints

The benefits of cold/cool stone Massage:

  • Refreshes and stimulates the mind
  • Helps to relieve tissue congestion (such as the sinuses)
  • Soothes irritation
  • Cools down the body on a warm day or during hot flushes.
  • Alternating the hot and cool stones helps every cell in the body to receive more oxygen & nutrients and encourages more effective removal of toxins.
