Hot stone massage
Our hot stone massage treatments combine several massage techniques with the use of warm stones, to give you the ultimate relaxing massage experience. We apply warm stones to gently heat the muscles for a massage treatment which promotes a much deeper sense of relaxation.
Relaxing massage strokes using warm basalt stones sooth away stress and strain . Our warm stone treatment allows you to enjoy the benefits of a deeper massage through the power of heat. Hot stone treatment can focus on the back, neck and shoulders, or an hour’s treatment can pamper your whole body.
We tailor our treatments uniquely to you in order to promote relaxation and enhance well-being.
Cool stone massage
We use complementary cool stones to reduce inflammation, provide pain relief and encourage healing. Additionally, we apply hot and cool stones in combination in order to utilize the principles of contrast therapy.
Prior to starting your hot stone massage, we will ask you to tell us a little about yourself. We’ll need to know about any specific issues you’d like your treatment to focus on. We will take a full medical history, including your lifestyle so that your treatment is truly holistic, effective and safe. Our thorough assessment ensures that you get the bespoke treatment that you desire. We may use a mixture of Swedish and remedial massage techniques, myofascial and soft tissue release. We also use trigger points and stretching, in addition to our lovely warm basalt or cool marble stones. You will receive relevant advice at the end of your massage to ensure you get the most out of your treatment.
