What is Hot Stone Massage Therapy?


Hot stone massage is different from other types of massage because it uses smooth, heated stones. These are usually Basalt river 'rocks', simply because they don’t have any jagged edges and they are at just the right weight to add the perfect amount of pressure.


These stones are also very effective at heating up and holding their heat for a duration of time.


The stones are small enough to hold in the palm of your hand and they’re warmed up using a special heater, ensuring they’re the perfect temperature, but not hot enough to burn or cause discomfort.


What happens during a Hot Stone Massage treatment?


Your hot stone massage begins from the moment you enter the room, with dimmed lights and gentle music. You'll be asked to lay face down on the warmed, padded couch and large warm stone placed on the base of your spine.


This warmth and pressure will have an instant cocooning and soothing effect.


Using massage oil and a combination of strokes, different pressures and techniques, we massage your neck, back, and shoulders with and without the stones. The stones help us to use a slightly deeper pressure during the actual massage and warm the muscles, giving you greater benefit and helping you to feel more relaxed as a result.


At the end of the massage you are left to just be and lay still for a few minutes, coming back to yourself and feeling completely and utterly relaxed.


Where did Hot Stone Therapy originate from?


The origins of hot stone massage therapy are somewhat disputed. Historical information shows the Hindus in India using hot stones and poultices placed on certain points of the body to relax and relieve muscle pain and fatigue, this is documented more than 5,000 years ago and is known as Ayurveda technique.


We also see hot stones being used more than 2,000 years ago where, in Chinese medicine, heated stones were used as a means to improving the function of important internal organs in China.


However, in 1993 the use of hot stones and its benefits was re-discovered in the modern world and is now a mainstay in the beauty industry worldwide.

After care Advice

After enjoying such a pleasant experience in our spa, you’ll want that feeling of bliss to last as long as possible! To retain the positive health benefits of your spa treatment for as long as possible, there’s a little aftercare advice you could follow:

  • Avoid any sporting activity or anything too strenuous after your massage – Take the time to relax a little more! It’s best to avoid anything strenuous until the next day. This is because the massage will not only release tension from your muscles, but toxins too. This can make you feel a little tired and you don’t want to push yourself and overdo it.

  • Drink water after the massage – This is to help flush out those muscle toxins and help you to feel energised and refreshed afterwards.

  • Avoid alcohol, nicotine, and caffeine after the massage – Your hot stone massage will aid in detoxing your system, so avoid these toxins for around 24 hours if possible, to benefit more.
