What Is A Hot Stone Massage?
Hot Stone Massage is a luxurious, deeply relaxing and warming treatment. It incorporates the use of hot and cold stones within the massage that allows for a deeper and more therapeutic massage treatment. A Holistic Facial treatment may also be incorporated into the massage routine.
How Does A Hot Stone Massage Work?
The Hot Stones are made of natural basalt that contain energy. Cold Stones are marine stones and are able to maintain a cool temperature. The Basalt stones are heated in water in a specialised stone heater. At the start of the treatment hot stones within towels are placed on various points of the body and the heat penetrates through the body. The stones are also used as a massage tool therefore intensifying the benefits of the massage.
Hot and cold stones used together have a stimulating effect on the body and promote a natural healing process. The stones also absorb positive and negative energies therefore offering a truly holistic treatment for the mind, body and soul.
A Holistic Facial treatment, if included, will further enhance this treatment by offering improved, rejuvenated and refreshed skin.
What Does A Hot Stone Massage Involve?
An initial consultation is undertaken to determine your specific needs and ensure the appropriate treatment is being offered. If a Facial is included, there will be an assessment of your skin type so the preparation of the appropriate skin products can be made. You will be asked to undress to your underwear while the Therapist leaves the room. Once undressed you will lie on the treatment couch and cover yourself with the towels. The Therapist will only re-enter the room once you have finished undressing and are covered up.
A full body massage is given utilising hand massage techniques. The application of hot and cold stones is used to deepen and intensify the massage including the placement of stones on various points of the body.
If a Facial is included the skin is initially removed of any make-up. The skin is then cleansed and exfoliated. A nourishing facial mask is applied and left for 10-15 minutes during which time a relaxing neck and shoulder massage is given. A toner is then applied to the skin with cold stones to tone and refresh the skin and to awaken you from a truly indulgent and relaxing massage treatment.
