Hot Stone Massage

hot-stone-massage-therapy-manDuration: 60 min R750

 

Who:

For those seeking a special massage that relaxes and relieves tense, sore muscles while simultaneously providing a delicious, sensual experience.

What:

The massage takes advantage of the heat-retaining properties of smooth, volcanic stones which are placed at strategic points along the surface of the back. The effect is both deeply soothing and therapeutic for areas that experience chronic discomfort or pain.

How:

Several smooth, small, volcanic stones are heated prior to the start of the treatment. During the massage, they are individually placed on parts of the body where there is pain or discomfort. The effect of the protracted, gentle heat is to bring blood to the area, promoting relief and healing to places that may be difficult to reach with hands. The experience is both therapeutic and deeply relaxing, with a wonderful sensual component that is best understood through the experience itself.
