05 Mar Hot Stone Tips!
Hot stone massage is a treat, so indulge as much as you can.
- Arrive early so you have time enough to relax and absorb your surroundings
- Food and Drink It’s not a good idea to eat a heavy meal or drink alcohol in the hours beforehand.
- Time Your hot stones treatment is likely to last about an hour; plenty of time for melting away all your knots, aches and worries.
- Medical Always tell your therapist about any medical conditions you have – particularly if you have heart disease or high blood pressure. They will take your medical history into account when choosing the right stones and techniques for your body.
- Pregnancy For similar reasons to medical, tell your therapist if you are, or think you might be, pregnant
- Heat Don’t be afraid to tell your therapist if the stones are too warm for you – they can be heated to 145 degrees Fahrenheit. You’ll relax much more quickly and start enjoying that delicious feeling of total well-being if you’re comfortable.
- When to book We recommend you should book hot stone treatments on a day when you won’t have to rush out somewhere afterwards. You’ll feel so relaxed and soothed after your treatment, jumping in the and tackling the rush hour traffic might seem sacrilegious.
