Hot Stone Therapy
Hot stone massage therapy uses water-heated basalt lava stones of varying sizes in combination with traditional massage techniques. The movement of the heated stones across the body with a base oil create a feeling of continuous warmth throughout the body. The purpose of this is to help the client become more physically and emotionally receptive to the therapeutic benefits of the massage and to promote quicker and deeper levels of relaxation and relief of muscle tension. Hot stone therapy is more effective than conventional massage due to the localised heat and allows more comfortable deep tissue massage if appropriate.
