Hot Stone Reflexology
Hot Stone Reflexology offers all the benefits of Reflexology as well as incorporating Hot Basalt Stones during the treatment which further aids a deep sense of relaxation due to their warmth and is perfect for the ultimate de stress.
The use of stones in massage has been part of many cultures around the world. With evidence suggesting that the Chinese have been using hot stone therapy for over 2000 years as a form of healing and maintaining balance in the body. As well as being seen in the histories of Europe, India, America and Africa.
The stones are composed of 'basalt' - which due to its high density retains heat well. They are heated at a controlled temperature and are only applied to the skin at a comfortable temperature.
So while they may be hot, they will not burn or cause discomfort.
A Full Hot Stone Reflexology Treatment
Hot Stones are used throughout the Reflexology treatment allowing the heat to work the reflex areas rather than the therapists fingers and thumbs.
The stones are first used to massage the lower legs; relieving any tension in the calf muscles and helping to enhance energy flow. This is then followed by using various sized stones to work the reflex areas and points on the feet.
The heat from the stones quickly opens up the reflex pathways bringing about a much deeper level of relaxation than reflexology alone.
The temperature of the Hot Stones are regulated in a specially designed bag to ensure they are kept at the correct temperature throughout.
Please ensure you wear loose fitting trousers during the treatment to allow me to work the whole leg up to the knee.
Hot Stone Reflexology treatments are for 75 minutes.

Heat penetrates to a much deeper level than finger pressure, bringing physiological changes as well as improving energy flow
