Hot Stone Therapy
Hot Stone Massage therapy is based upon traditional Swedish massage techniques, Hot Stone therapy is a contemporary approach to alternating temperatures; basalt is the recommended stone for a treatment. Rich in iron and magnesium, basalt also has an excellent capacity to retain heat. Cold marble stones are used as a contrast to the heated stones.
The therapeutic benefits of this treatment go beyond ordinary massage. The physiological benefits of alternating heat and cold helps to aleviate strains to the limbs and have long been scientifically and medically proven.
How does Hot Stone Massage therapy differ from ordinary massage?
For one, Hot Stone Massage therapy produces both sedative and energising responses. It delivers a deeper therapeutic treatment through relaxing, grounding and cleansing the body, mind and spirit. It goes beyond the physical experience of typical massage and enters the deeper dimensions of relaxation.
What will my first treatment involve?
Valeria will begin by taking a case history which will take into consideration your past and present health. The treatment itself will begin with application of water heated stones being placed on specific points through-out the body, the stones are then used to massage the body with heat warming and relaxing the muscles, which allows the therapist to apply a deeper pressure if desired.
This wonderful treatment restores a sense of wholeness that you may not have felt for some time.
With each treatment personally tailored according to the individual client, I may choose to incorporate essential oils to maximise benefits. Clients truly love the recharge they experience after a treatment.
