Hot Stone Reflexology

This is a complete, bespoke reflexology treatment, but with the added natural elements of heat and basalt stones. A combination which will take your relaxation to the next level.

Treating the body with hot stones goes back to the ancient civilizations of the East, who believed the stones would help to cleanse their bodies, calm their hearts and ground their souls. Hot Stones are usually associated with body massage, but they are equally wonderful used in a reflexology treatment and produce similar physical and physiological effects on the body.

The stones used are volcanic basalt river stones. They have excellent heat retention, feel silky smooth and have their own special energy about them.

The treatment starts and ends using the stones to massage, warm and relax the muscles of the lower legs and feet, and then moving on to work on the reflexes of the feet with more precision. The heat of the stones not only helps to relax muscle tension, but has also been found to lower cortisol levels and help support the parasympathetic nervous system to reduce stress.

If you are looking for something a little different, this is a highly recommended treatment to try!

Although hot stones are a safe treatment, there are a few instances where they may not be suitable (eg during pregnancy, lack of sensitivity/neuropathy in the feet and for those who have inflammatory or skin conditions such as arthritis, psoriasis or eczema on the feet). If in doubt, please check before booking.
