HOT STONE THERAPY

 

Hot Stone Therapy is a speciality massage where the therapist uses smooth, heated stones as an extension of their own hands. The heat is deeply relaxing and helps to warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply, more quickly.

Before you arrive, I sanitize the stones and heat them up in bath of hot water. The stones themselves are usually basalt, a black volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat well, and have been smoothed by natural forces in the river or sea.

The treatment starts with a traditional Swedish massage using oil; stones are then introduced in various combinations and patterns to specific areas of the body depending upon the needs of the client. The overall treatment has the beneficial effects of increasing circulation and lymph drainage, which improves cell and physical metabolism as well as producing a deeply relaxing, meditative state. The whole experience creates an optimum healing environment and helps the body to rebalance. As the stone cools, I replace it with another. I use many stones of various shapes and sizes - big ones on the big muscles, smaller ones on small etc.

I may also leave the heated stones in specific points along your spine, in the palms of your hand, on your belly, or even between your toes to improve the flow of energy in your body. Many therapists believe that the stones themselves have an energetic charge and healing properties.
