Hot Stone Massage

What is a Hot Stone Massage?

A Hot Stone Massage is where instead of the use of a Massage Therapist hands and fingers to apply stokes and pressure to relieve tension and tight muscles, the use of heated 'Volcanic Basalt Stones' are used to apply deeper heat to impact the muscles more thoroughly.


It not only enhances the treatment for the client, but can be much kinder to a Therapists hands. Volcanic Basalt Stones can also be used chilled. This can be beneficial to those with muscular pain, swelling and inflammation.
