Hot Stone Massage Therapy
Find your healing hot spots. Stone massage therapy uses the smooth surface and weight of alternately hot and cold stones to ease and tease your body into a blissful state of relaxation.
It’s fast becoming one of the most popular massage treatments, partly because it feels so unique and partly because the varying temperatures of the stones can be used to treat a number of common complaints. For example, if you suffer from muscular aches, rheumatism, arthritic pain, stress or insomnia then a stone massage could help to put the spring back in your step. You may never look at your rockery in the same way again.
How does it work?
So here’s the science bit: the hot stones are used to expand your blood vessels and to relax your muscles, while the cold stones are used to stimulate your nervous system and increase the lymph flow of waste materials around your body. Cold stones can also be used to help control muscular inflammation after injury (a more elegant version of the bag of frozen peas trick).
