Our hot stone massage is the perfect treatment to soothe mind, body and soul. Cocooned in blankets with the heated couch warming you through this nurturing and special treatment begins with a Thai hand walk up and down the back, with stretches and holds designed to instill a sense of calm and turn the world off. A large basalt stone is placed at the base of the spine to introduce heat. The massage itself is a bespoke combination of work with the hot stone, hands, forearms and elbows depending on what level of intensity the muscles need. In the full body massage stones are placed in key areas, under the knees, between the toes, under the shoulders and in the hands once that area has been worked to allow the energy of the stones to continue to work their magic.
The benefits include;
The stones are not placed down the back so forget all those Google images you've seen, we use them to apply the massage movements. With heat of approximately 55ºC the stones definitely need to keep moving! The stones are smoothed basalt rock, which is rich in iron so they retain heat and have been naturally smoothed by the flow of a river to provide a wonderful massage tool.
