Stone Therapy

Is a deeply relaxing treatment and is used to create balance within the body. The Hot Stones are black volcanic stones with a smooth finish the cold stones are made of white marble. They are massaged and placed upon the client tailored to the client’s needs. Stones have been used for many years and the principal of this treatment is based upon geothermal therapy (the change of temperature can have physiological responses). Heat from stones increases blood flow and relaxes the muscles which allows the therapist to work much deeper, while the cold stones can soothe the body and can reduce nerve pain and inflammation.

During the treatment

A full consultation needs to be done before the treatment as not all clients are suited to this treatment. The stones are heated up in a stone heater to a temperature of 125-150 degrees. The stones can be used with a Swedish massage for a more relaxing treatment or a Deep Tissue Massage to work on those deeper muscles. The stones are different shapes and sizes which are introduced in various combinations and patterns to specific areas of the body depending upon the needs of the client.
