Hot Stone Massage

Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage uses a lot of the same movements as classic Swedish massage, but utilises hot stones in addition to the therapists hands. Hot stones provide a deep penetrating warmth to ease tense muscles.

Your massage therapist will hold heated stones while performing your massage, allowing their warmth to penetrate the skin, deep into the muscles. Some stones can also be used for placement (protected with towels) and cold stones can be used to ease congestion, especially in the face.

The warmth of a Hot stone massage is deeply relaxing and can help with a number of physical and psychological conditions, it helps to soothe the nerves and relax the muscles and mind. Some people with joint disorders find the warming effect of the stones to be very effective in easing their discomfort.

Treatments generally last 30-90 minutes. If you’re new to hot stone massage your therapist may suggest using hot stones for only part of your treatment.

This depends entirely on you and your treatment goals.
