Hot Stone massage
Hot Stone Massage is a variation on classic massage therapy and has been used for hundreds of years by many different cultures. Some heated smooth flat stones are placed on key points of the body, others are used by the therapist to massage certain areas.
The main purpose of Hot Stone Massage is to increase blood circulation to relax the muscles and create a state of deep mental relaxation. The heat of the stones penetrates deep into the muscle allowing it to relax 4 to 5 times quicker than with standard techniques, easing muscle tension and revitalising the muscle tissue.
The hardness of the stones allows the therapist to address specific problem areas with more detailed work or deeper pressure. Hot Stone Massage is very suited to bring comfort and relaxation but can also relieve a variety of health conditions, including: back aches and pains, poor circulation, stress and anxiety, insomnia and arthritis pain.
