Hot Stone Massage
"THE hot stones glide over your oiled flesh like molten silk, the heat seeping deep in your muscles.
Outside, a chill south-westerly wind beats against the glass door panes, the wood fire crackles occasionally, the only other sound an occasional low-pitched sigh.
For undiluted massage pleasure, a hot stone massage is undeniably on the another plane." Mike O'Connor, Courier Mail

Hot Stone Massage Story
Massaging with hot stones has been around for ages. Back in ancient Egypt, warm stones were used in beauty treatments, Native American Indians used them and in Hawaii heated stones we used to make their Lomi Lomi massage out of this world.
We love using hot stones because it makes it so easy for us to you relax you and send you to that place where everything is just fine and nothing, we mean nothing, is stressful.
Our therapists call it Massage La La Land, the time where you get off the table with your hair all oiled and this really dopey, serene look on your face.
We use the volcanic rocks in two ways.
Large flat stones are heated and then placed on top of a towel along your back to heat the chakras (or energy centres) of the body.
Smooth round stones that fit into the palm of the hand are also heated, drenched in aromatherapy oils, and then melt into your skin.
The mixture of the heat, essential oils and massage techniques allows for deep relaxation of your muscles and feels fantastic?like a ball of heat gliding over the body.
Hot Stone massage is great for letting go of stress from work, escaping from the kids with your partner, loosening up muscles that have been knotted for the last century or just to be nice to yourself.
Top tips to make the most of your hot stone massage
- Have a really hot shower or bath before hand to start the muscles relaxing.
- Book a long treatment. Hot stones are a more complicated massage than your usual hands on massage, so book at least two hours to make sure you get the most from this style of massage.
- Ensure your room is nice and warm
- Have a small snack ready so that afterwards you can just relax and enjoy the after effects of your hot stone massage.
- Make no plans for the rest of the day!
Recipe for the peppermint foot soak, included in every hot stone massage
So we love to start with a warm foot soak before any of our massages.
Just a nice way to start to unwind your body and relax.
Plus the scent of the oils we use make your room smell divine, and the salt is great for the feet.
So how do we make the foot soak that you start with before we get you on our massage table for your hot stone massage?
Super easy. Its simply salt and some of our favourite essential oils, in this case we usually use peppermint.
Make it strong and you will only need to use a little bit each time you soak your feet.
