During a hot stone massage warm flat stones are placed on the body. The soothing heat immediately takes effect, calming the nervous system and freeing energy so it flows throughout the entire body. From time to time during the therapy a few stones will be removed and that part of the body will be rubbed with oil and massaged with the hot stones and so on until the entire body has been treated.
Hot stone massage helps to melt away tension, make you calm, balance you and to make you feel secure; in other words, it makes you feel that you have both feet planted firmly on the ground. You will be massaged with the hot basalt stones, which come from hot volcanic lava. The stones have beautiful round shapes because they have lain for centuries at the bottom of river beds. They have been shaped by nature and come from clean and energy-rich areas. According to an old Indian saying they are formed by the four elements: Earth, Water, Fire and Air.
Because the stones are volcanic in origin they have a high iron and magnesium content, allowing them to retain heat longer. A hot stone massage assists the self-healing process of the body. The stones have a detoxifying effect, stimulate the organs, give renewed energy and restore your body’s balance.
We advise you against having a hot stone massage if you have any of the medical conditions listed below:
– contagious skin disorders
– extreme tiredness/exhaustion
If you suffer from a medical condition not listed above, we advise you to consult your GP, specialist or therapist beforehand.
Please note: Due to the preparation of the hot lava stones, the effective massage time for this massage is 55 minutes instead of 60 minutes.
