Hot Stone Therapy

Basalt, a rock which is rich in iron and therefore retains heat more easily and for longer is the ideal choice for the stone used. Stone therapy is a powerful, energising skin massage. It is known to promote and harmonise, cleanse and detoxify, relax, calm, relieve water retention and muscle tension.The stones are formed by sedimentary and volcanic actions deep in the earth, with the volcanoes bringing the stones to the surface and into rivers where the centuries of water flowing over them smoothes the surface. The thermal conduction is harnessed in the treatment once the stones are heated. This can influence the energy centres balancing both mind and bodyThe heat from the stones allows deep penetration via reflex conductions to the muscle tissue and joints giving a deeper than manual massage.
