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.
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.

At the end of the treatment I literally felt like I had a different horse.
Thank you so much for the fantastic treatment you have given my horse Bobby. I had had a nasty fall following a succession of bucking sessions. One of my friends suggested that perhaps Bobby was bucking because he was in pain. When you first saw him you quickly identified where the problem was and his likely presentation in certain circumstances. You gave him three treatments over a period of a few weeks. At the end of the treatment I literally felt like I had a different horse. I called him fantastic elastic because he felt so flexible and willing, and guess what, the bucking had completely stopped. I will keep up regular maintenance treatments because I realise how important it is to keep his pelvis and back supple and flexible. In my opinion your approach is a vital part of keeping my horse happy and going well, thank you.Michelle
