Hot Stone Massage

During the hot stone massage treatment, smooth, basaltic (volcanic) rocks that have been heated in water can be used in two ways; some stones are wrapped in towels and placed on specific energy places on your body, these are known as chakras, they are placed on the body to align and re-balance the body’s natural energy flow, whilst other stones are used by the therapist to perform the body massage.

The heat of the stones penetrates deep into the muscle tissue allowing the muscles to relax much quicker than in a standard body massage, easing muscle tension and revitalising the muscle tissue by increasing blood circulation.

The deep relaxation and increased blood flow to the areas being worked not only accelerates any healing processes but also creates a state of deep mental relaxation.

The benefits of hot stone massage include:

* Improved circulation
* Increased lymphatic drainage (toxin removal)
* Improved blood flow to tissues
* Reduces muscular tension
* Relieves aches and pains
* Reduces stress and anxiety
* Produces a deep relaxation

Who can enjoy hot stone massage?

As with all hands-on holistic therapies, hot stone massage may not be suitable for everyone and certain medical conditions may prevent the use of this treatment, or may require your GP’s consent.  In particular, anyone suffering from heat sensitivity and pregnant clients should avoid this treatment. A full consultation will be carried out before your first treatment which enables me to ensure that hot stone massage is right for you.  Please feel free to call or email us if you would like to check your suitability before the treatment.

Common complaints treated with hot stone massage

Hot stone massage can be used for a variety of ailments, or simply for a deep level of relaxation and is particularly effective for relieving muscle tension, rheumatic or arthritic conditions, Multiple Sclerosis, back pain, nervous conditions and stress and anxiety.

What happens during a hot stone treatment?

You will be asked to remove your clothing (except underpants) in private and make yourself comfortable on the massage couch, with towels to cover your body.  During the massage, only the part of your body being massaged will be exposed, to ensure your modesty. At different times during the massage the stones will be wrapped in a towel and placed on certain parts of the body and other stones used to perform the massage over the skin. A massage oil will be applied to the skin to allow free movement of the stones and to nourish the skin.

A full body massage usually treats the back, legs, abdomen, arms, chest and neck and face, although this can be adapted to suit your individual requirements or preferences.
