Stone Therapy, also known as Hot Stones, is a wonderfully relaxing massage combining the use of both heated and chilled stones. This creates a “vascular gymnastics” of the circulatory system, assisting the body in self-healing. Stones are used not only because of their heat/cold retaining nature, but because the therapist can work with reduced physical exertion.

Using long, gliding strokes, heated Basalt stones carved from volcanic rock are used as an extension of the hands to perform Swedish massage over pressure points of the body; relaxing the muscles and soothing away tension, as well as aiding in the removal of toxins. Throughout the treatment, warm stones are strategically placed to enhance those relaxing and cosy feelings. Stone massage is a luxurious treatment that will leave you feeling thoroughly pampere..just as you deserve.
