Hot Stone Massage is a soothing and deep massage technique in which Basalt lava stones are placed in a special heater with water added, then pre-heated to a therapeutic temperature. The heated stones are then placed on specific points around the body letting the heat penetrate deep into the muscles, alleviating discomfort in the area.


How We Can Help

By using traditional Swedish massage strokes, the stones are held and massaged as an extension of the Therapist’s hand generating great warmth and relaxation.
