HOT AND COLD STONE MASSAGE 

 

                                                            

 

Hot Stone Massage is a deeply relaxing treatment, which combines holistic

 

massage with the use of water-heated smooth basalt stones and cold stones

 

to release physical tension, improve circulation and flush toxins from the body.

 

Using the contrast of hot and cold stones stimulates the blood vessels to

 

dilate in the tissues, perfusing them with fresh blood & nutrients, which are

 

essential for healing to occur. Also this encourages increased drainage from

 

the tissues of the waste products of metabolism, therefore reducing the toxic

 

load on the tissues.                                        

 

Using the hot stones relaxes the muscles and connective tissues, so reduces

 

tension on the joints. This effect also allows for deeper massage manipulation

 

of the soft tissues and eliminates any therapeutic discomfort that may occur

 

from the remedial massage alone. This approach is usually found to be

 

deeply relaxing and very comforting.            

 

With the vascular stimulation of blood supply - hot stone massage assists

 

every cell in the body to receive more oxygen and nutrients while increasing

 

blood and lymphatic drainage to help the elimination of toxins.

 

The cold stones help to reduce inflammation, refresh, invigorate and

 

decongest. They stimulate the nervous system and when used with the hot

 

stones, they create a cleansing effect in the body.

 

Hot Stone Massage is usually found beneficial for:

 

• Stress & Stress Related Problems

• Fatigue - chronic fatigue (long term) & acute (short term)

• Poor Circulation

• Detoxification

• Pain Relief

• PMT - premenstrual tension

• Arthritis - joint inflammation

 

Crystals or Reiki can be used and incorporated into the treatment to restore harmony, balance and vitality.
