Hot and Cold Stone Therapy

Harmonising, restoring, and rejuvenating the body at its deepest level.

Stone therapy has become one of the most popular treatments over the last ten years. Working in harmony with massage, this technique uses warm stones, placed on the client's body and in the therapists' hands. The heat gently penetrates the skin and muscles, helping the client to relax and de-stress in half the time of a standard massage. This unique therapy uses stones that are formed by sedimentary and volcanic action, which conduct heat quickly and help to bring about local and systemic changes in the body. The powerful 'metathetic' energies of stone massage are known to promote a harmonizing and cleaning effect, thus allowing for a meditative state of quietude and calm.

The application of hands in conjunction with stones produces intensified contacts with the unique energies of the stones and universal energy, assisting with the energy flow within and directing the vital flow to areas of blockage, releasing, balancing, and restoring harmony.

What makes stone massage so effective?

The physical body is inseparable from the mind and emotions.  Disease can be regarded as an expression of some kind of disharmony whether physical or emotional, occurring within a person’s energy system.

This therapy approaches from the belief that bodies are vast electro-magnetic circuits, as exampled for instance in the energy activity used by 'ubiquinone', which is used by every cell in our bodies. It is vital to health and survival, and also a critical electron transporter, used especially by mitochondria (our cells powerhouse generating fundamental body energy).

Using these specific stone’s conduction of energy, influences change both to an area that is lacking and also moves energy in places of excesses, balancing and harmonising the body. These powerful transformational energies when incorporated with massage, impart their natural antidote to ionic distortion and disorders. Hot stone massage is used to help treat medical problems and ease tension in the mind, and works with the body making it a holistic whole body treatment. Using stones, the therapist can penetrate the muscle fibres at a deeper level than manual massage alone making it more effective for the client.
