Stone Therapy Massage uses geothermotherapy which is the application of heated and chilled stones. During the stone therapy massage water heated smooth basalt volcanic stones are used in two ways; large placement stones are placed on top of the sheet along the spine, in the palms of the hands and in between the toes. Whilst smaller stones are used to slowly massage the warmed oil into the body to manipulate muscle and connective tissue. The heat will relax your body in a short space of time, so I can focus on releasing tight muscle tissues using both the hot stones and soothing swedish massage strokes. There is no set routine as the massage is changed and adapted to fit your specific requires on the day of your massage depending on your muscular problem areas or whether its just to aid relaxation.
Chilled marine marble stones can be used in short applications over the shoulders and abdomen to help inflammation in the soft tissues and disperse nodules around the scapula blades. The heat from the basalt stones really helps to relieve stress, promotes sleep, eases stiff chronic muscle and joint pain. Encouraging damaged tissues to heal more quickly due to the increase in circulation and blood flow. Increasing the temperature of the afflicted area even slightly can soothe discomfort and increase muscle flexibility.
I only use Cruelty Free, Paraben Free, Vegan Friendly, 100% natural carrier and pure essential aromatherapy oils within my massage treatments.
