Hot Stone Massage

Hot Stones Massage is a relaxing and effective therapeutic massage of the body. It can help relieve stress, aches, pains, knots and muscle tension. With the direct heat from the hot stones relaxing the muscles, it allows for a greater intensity massage. Depending on what each individual patient would like to gain from their Hot Stone Massage the result has been described in many different ways; calming, energizing or simply very relaxing. It offers deep therapeutic comfort and healing and if conducted by our highly qualified sports massage therapist, can also aid muscle health and regeneration.

What to expect

You lay on our specially prepared massage table covered with warm soft towels. Volcanic basalt stones are used which are rich in natural minerals, including iron and magnesium silicate. Most stones used in Hot Stone Massage are handpicked from South American River beds. The stones will then be heated in a special heater to a temperature of approximately 50°C. Top quality organic oil is gently massaged into your muscles and then the pre warmed stones are used to deepen the massage. Some stones may be left to rest on your body during the massage to help relax your muscles further.

Benefits

Hot Stone Massage reduces muscular aches, pains, sprains and strains, including lower and upper backache, (especially when combined with Sports Massage). It can improve circulation, helping the transportation of oxygen and nutrients around the body and at the same time remove harmful toxins whilst boosting the immune system.

I really wish I had come to see Chantal sooner, it just shows that sometimes the answer is easier than you could possibly imagine.

I have suffered with continuous headaches for over 20 years, some of which lasted for 3 days or more and I was more or less resigned to the fact that I would have to put up with them for the rest of my days.

I find myself guilty of judging a book by its cover and in Chantal’s case this was a mistake. I made her aware at our first meeting that I was ‘anti doctor’ and highly sceptical of her chances of curing my headaches. However, she talked me into giving it a go and she was right. I have to say I am amazed!

This is an understatement really because just after 4 visits I have had only 2 headaches, only one of which was bad. I know that sounds a lot but in that time I would normally have suffered with a dozen or so. It has also helped my general mobility and has really improved my quality of life. Riding my bike has become a pleasure again and not a pain in the neck after 50 miles.

I really wish I had come to see Chantal sooner, it just shows that sometimes the answer is easier than you could possibly imagine.

I just want to say thank you. Somehow that does not seem enough but she really is a star! I will have no worries about recommending Chantal to my friends and hope she receives the recognition she deserves. She has my eternal respect and gratitude.
