Hot Stone Reflexology

Try a Hot Stone Reflexology treatment to experience ultimate relaxation and many more benefits........

The ancient healing art of stone therapy using various massage techniques and warm stones to relax the body at its deepest level and is effective in creating harmony and balance. The subtle energies of stones introduced into a treatment calm the senses, relax muscle tension and promote a meditative state.

The heat from the stones penetrates to a deeper level and can reach up to 7 cms into the superficial layer of muscle; bringing about physiological changes as well as influencing the body's internal energy flow (Chi); therefore, bringing balance to both body and mind.

The effects and potential benefits of hot stones include:

  • Heat penetrates to a much deeper level than finger pressure, reaching around 7cm into tissues. This brings about physiological changes as well as improving energy flow
  • Improves blood circulation & lymphatic drainage
  • Promotes the release & elimination of toxins
  • Boosts immunity and the lymphatic function
  • Relieves tension in connective tissues
  • Reduces muscular tension
  • It is warming, deeply relaxing & soothing helping to melt away any tension or anxiety
  • Helps to bring about a balance of body as well as mind.

The stones I use are basalt, a volcanic rock, which due to its high density retains heat well. Stones are firstly used to massage the lower legs relieving any tension in the calf muscles and helping to enhance energy flow. Smaller stones are then used to work the reflex areas and points of the feet. The heat from the stones quickly opens the reflex pathways bringing about a much deeper level of relaxation than Reflexology alone.

Please ensure you wear loose trousers during the treatment to allow me to work the whole leg up to the knee.
