HotStone Massage is a form of bodywork that involves the use of heated and cooled stones, Geo-Thermo-Therapy, applied to the body to bring about relief to tired and sore muscles, alleviating chronic and acute symptoms that many of us deal with on a daily basis.

Basalt and Marble stones are used as tools to provide hot and cold “messages” to the body. This “Vascular Gymnastics” for the circulatory system assists the body’s self healing process. It is a massage treatment that goes beyond the normal parameters of therapy as we have previously known.

Combining its principles with the traditional healing practices of the Native American Indians. Hotstone massage capitalises on these practices with a modern approach.

What Can I Expect During my Hot Stone Massage?

Your therapist, Susan Richardson begins by applying oil to the body, which allows the hot stones to glide smoothly along the muscles. You are lying face down, Susan often then uses the hot stones to massage the back.

After the hot stones have relaxed the muscles, the massage therapist may put down the stones and use his or her hands to directly massage the skin.

The hot stones may then be placed back on to the body and left for a short period of time.

You are then asked to turn over onto your back. The massage therapist may place small hot stones between your toes or in the palm of your hand and repeats the sequence.
