Stone Therapy Massage

 

What is Stone Therapy Massage?

Uses geothermotherapy which is the application of heated and chilled stones.

During the stone massage water heated, smooth basalt volcanic stones are used in two ways; large placement stones are placed on top of the sheet along the spine, in the palms of the hands and in between the toes. Whilst smaller stones are used to slowly massage the warmed oil into the body.

Chilled marine marble stones can be used in short applications over the shoulders and abdomen.

There is no set routine as the massage is changed and adapted to fit the specific requires on the day of your massage, catering for what you want and need when you come to see me.
