Work with your body’s natural energies – Hot Stone Massage
Using a mixture of volcanic stones and sedimentary rocks, this ancient therapy provides a combination of alternating temperatures to create a beneficial deep relaxation. The stones are heated or chilled to varying temperatures and come in all shapes and sizes. Stones are then placed on the client according to their needs and, when used with massage, can provide deeply therapeutic benefits. The massage therapist may also hold the stones and use them to massage certain areas of the body.
Heated volcanic stones can:
- Be used on key acupressure points relaxing the muscles to allow for a much deeper massage
- Be placed on the body’s energy points to create balance both physically and mentally
- Improve circulation
- Calm the nervous system
Cooled stones allow for:
- Reduced inflammation via removing blood form swollen areas
Using hot and cold stones together can improve the functioning of the circulatory system and assist the body with its self-healing, self-regulating processes.
** Hot stone therapy is only available with Leonie, our therapist for Friday afternoons.
