Hot Stones Massage - the next level in massage treatments 🔥
Hot stone therapy is a specialised holistic approach to massage that uses, flat, smooth, heated stones to encourage relaxation and ease tension build up in an individual’s muscle and connective tissue.
A hot stone massage may begin with a traditional Swedish massage technique to prepare your muscles with the therapist employing a variation of strokes through application of both the stones and the therapist’s hands. The stones are prepared prior to your treatment. Additionally, the stones are placed in water before application reaching temperatures between 50 – 60°C.
On arrival, you will discuss with your therapist which area of the body you would like to be treated and the intensity of the treatment that you require; Relaxation or Deep Tissue Massage. Following the discussion with your therapist, the stones are then tested on you to ensure the heat is appropriate for your skin type and to make sure you experience a soothing, relaxing and enjoyable massage experience.
Now, it is time to relax … and treatment will begin.
