Hot Stone Therapy

Hot Stone Therapy is the skillful art of bodywork utilizing various size, form and weights of warmed, smooth, flattish stones. The pre-warmed stones are placed on key points of the body to stimulate the circulatory system. The stones are also used to warm, soften and relax tight, aching muscles; while promoting an extraordinary feeling of relaxation and contentment. Often, rocks made of smooth volcanic Basalt are used because of their high iron content and ability to retain heat.

While the hot stones soften the body muscles and help to release toxins, your trained therapist will usually apply Swedish Style relaxation massage to other areas of your body. Select warmed, smooth stones are often used with essential oils as a massage tool by your therapist as well.

Sometimes the healing property of heat is also utilized with small heated stones between your toes and other areas of your body that can benefit. In certain cases, your therapist may alternately use cold stones with the hot ones, to help in healing muscular injury and inflammation.

A number of specific therapeutic benefits are attributed to the skillful application and usage of hot stones. Health conditions such as deep muscular aches and pains, stress, circulatory problems, arthritis, fibromylagia, sleep problems and others, can benefit wondrously from skillfully applied Hot Stone Therapy.

The combination of Relaxation Massage and Hot Stone Therapy is definitely an experience that keeps clients coming back for more. We invite you to experience it for yourself by visiting our appointment book to book a session with us. We look forward to seeing you soon!

If you have never experienced this unique indulgence, you owe yourself this exquisite moment.

Some Benefits Include:

  • Provides relief from pain associated with fibromyalgia, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome and other chronic conditions
  • Decreases pain and muscle spasms
  • Increases flexibility in joints, aiding in easier mobility and movement
  • Reduces chronic stress and tension
  • Reduction in symptoms of anxiety and depression – lowers cortisol levels by up to 50%
  • Reduction of insomnia
  • Expands blood vessels aiding in detoxification, stimulating our immune system and improving digestion Essentially, anything deep tissue massage can treat, Hot Stone massage can treat just as well, if not better.  The stones are used in the same way that a Therapist would use their elbow, forearm or even fist to give the massage, but you have the added benefit of the heat which sedates the nervous system so the Therapist can get into that tissue much faster.

A lot of people choose Hot Stones just for the relaxation purpose also.  To just relax, bliss out, and let the heat take them to a nice relaxing place to melt the day away.  And that is just great too.

For Therapeutic Hot Stone Massage, a $10.00 fee is added to the massage.
