Hot Stone Massage
How does it work?
Many stones of various shapes and sizes are used, and stones may be positions on
specific areas of the body including palms, belly, and between toes. For safety,
most of the time these stones won’t be in direct contact with the skin, instead they
will be placed onto a towel to buffer the heat. The therapist will take several
other heated stones and begin massaging areas of the body.
The soothing warmth and massaging of a hot stone massage treatment can increase blood flow around the body, sedate the nervous system, stimulate the lymphatic system aiding detoxification, promotes deep relaxation in the muscles, reducing muscle spasms, and boosts the immune system.
What happens in a treatment?
On arrival a consultation will be carried out to find out about your health and well being; this will highlight any focus areas as well as deciding how to adapt the treatment specifically to your needs. After the consultation you will be given time to undress privately and lie down on the massage table, where you may cover your self with towels. During the massage you be modestly draped at all times. Only the area being worked on will be exposed. The therapist often begins by applying oil to the body, which allows the hot stones to glide smoothly along the muscles. A full body massage consists of massage to the face, neck, shoulders, upper chest, scalp, arms, hands, legs, feet, stomach and back.
