Hot Stone Massage
What is it?
A Hot Stone Massage is a gentle treatment using smooth, flat and warmed volcanic stones which are incorporated into the massage strokes of the therapist.
How does it work
Angie uses locally sourced smooth lava stones which are placed in water and heated before being used within the massage and for placement on the body. The heat of the stones warms the skin allowing it to absorb nourishing aromatherapy oils while at the same time the muscles of the body are warmed so deeper muscles layers can be gently worked. Cold marble stones can also be used and combined with the hot volcanic stones forms a very beneficial treatment for dispersal of muscle congestion and produces an invigorating and energizing effect.
