05 Mar What to expect from hot stone massage
Hot stone massage employs a variety of long strokes and techniques using the stones and hands, working over kinks in your muscles. You are unlikely to feel the intensity, since your muscles will be relaxed by the heat of the stones.
Hot stone massage should trigger a deeply relaxed, blissed-out and meditative state. Heat relaxes your body in a short space of time, so your massage therapist can focus on a deep working of the tissues using both hot stones and hand strokes. They are coated in fragrant oil which is smoothed gently onto your body, and each stone in turn is worked by your therapist’s hands.
The techniques can be light or firm which would be a personal choice to you as the client. Fresh towels will be used along with blankets and a warm room to ensure you feel comfortable throughout.
