Hot stone massage will make you feel nurtured, pampered and special – and it is healing and therapeutic too.
Hot stone massage uses soothing oils and warm basalt stones to relax your muscles, allowing for a deeper and more intense all-over massage.
In hot stone therapy, your therapist places smooth, heated basalt stones to key points on your body. This direct heat relaxes your muscles, which means that the massage itself is more effective and intense. Stones are also used to massage heat deeply into your muscles and allow the therapist to work more deeply. The size of the stones varies, according to which part of the body your therapist is treating.
