Hot Stone Therapy

Have you ever felt during a massage that the masseuse was just not strong enough to push through the ridges of tension in your shoulder blades, and at the same time not gentle enough to melt the tension between your toes?

Then try Hot stone massage therapy, a post-modern combination of gentle massage with ancient tools of penetration.

Stone massage therapy blends the ancient art of stone massage with modern massage techniques to create a massage experience unlike any other you have received on a massage table before.

Hot Stone therapy is an ancient healing art that has recently been rediscovered.

Basalt stones are heated and applied to the body in relaxing, unique ways.
Hot stone therapy goes beyond the physical experience of typical massage and enters deeper dimensions of relaxation, health and well-being. . The stones are used in one of two ways. The first is similar to a heating pad. The stones are placed under soft towels and the client lays on them. The second way is as heated tools. The therapist will use the stones as an extension of their hands to deeply work through muscle tension. Stone encompasses both hot and cold sensations. Some of the stones are cooled instead of heated. The cooled stones, white in color, are also multi-purposed, and can be used to sooth inflammations, to comfort tired eyes, or as part of a technique called "the chase" which involves both temperatures as part of the therapy.

The heated stones are placed all around the body's energy points, including the hands, in-between toes, along the back, the stomach, on the eyes, forehead, etc. These energy points are referred to in the field as chakras.

Stone massage therapy is just beginning to emerge as a popular form of massage therapy. It is truly a unique and exhilarating experience. The warmth of these heated stones penetrates muscles and balances the nervous system like no other treatment. The warmth expands the blood vessels, pushing blood and unwanted waste materials through the body. This has a sedative effect on the nervous system. Physically the circulation and metabolism are stimulated; mentally the client reaches a state of deep relaxation and spiritually is balanced and healing takes place.

During this treatment you benefit by:

  • Deeper Relaxation
  • Continuous Heat Therapy
  • Increased Relief to Stressed Muscles
  • Improved Detoxification

In these busy and stressful times, our bodies are thrown off balance.
With Hot Stone Massage the body, mind and spirit are soothed from the inside out.

An experience not to be missed!
