What is a hot stone massage?

Hot stone massages are a very pleasurable experience and we are experts at our speciality which means that we only use the highest quality stones that are heated to maximum temperature to ensure that you receive a soothing and relaxing massage.

We picked the basalt stones for their smooth texture and non-porous nature.

The high ferruginous component of the stone with smooth texture and high heat retention abilities will open blood vessels and increase blood flow, relaxing the muscles and mood. Hot stone massage therapy works by slowly kneading to warm up the muscles, then applying smooth stones which are heated to improve blood flow, relieve muscle soreness, ease muscle pain and tension, and promote deep relaxation.

With over 100 years of history, Basalt Stone is the most famous stone in the world and has been used to treat a wide range of ailments. You may use the stones to take care of your body's own natural healing properties and take the stress out of daily life.
