Full body Hot Stone massage uses warm, volcanic stones to massage the muscles, which in turn stimulates the muscles to relax therefore soothing aches and pains. Traditional Swedish massage techniques using aromatherapy oils stimulate the muscles with the hot stones. The heated stones are then placed on certain energy pathways of the body to encourage the flow of energy, resulting in an enlightened state of relaxation.

For muscle inflammation, hot and cold stones can be used. Alternative use of hot and cold stones helps to stimulate the muscle to relax and contract encouraging the relaxation response and increasing blood flow and circulation to the area of pain.

What to expect during a Hot Stone massage

Once you are comfortable on the massage bed, the treatment begins. The therapist starts by applying oil to your body while the stones are heated in the electrical heater. After the therapist has checked that the stones are at the right temperature, she’ll use the stones in her hands to massage your body using gliding motions.

Once the stones have done their job of relaxing your muscles, the therapist will then use her hands to perform a Swedish massage. The Hot stones may be placed back onto your body for short periods of time between massaging and if you have any inflammation, cold stones may also be applied.

The treatment should last approximately one hour, so allow yourself plenty of time. It’s best to arrive early to get yourself relaxed and adjusted to your surroundings, and allow yourself time at the end to gently awaken from your blissful state.
