The ultimate in therapy and luxury is to treat yourself to a Hot Stone Reflexology Treatment.
In Hot Stone Reflexology, Bassalt stones are used to massage the foot or apply pressure to specific points that need attention. The stones have the ability to make a reflexology treatment more holistic in nature.
After cleansing the feet, a “warming heart” massage is performed using hot stones, easing the strains and stresses around the neck and shoulder. Warm stones are placed under your shoulders, letting tensions melt away and a warm belly stone is placed on your hara.
The goal of the Hot Stone Reflexology Treatment is to free up areas of pain. It is the stagnant energy in the body that induces illness and it is with reflexology that we aim to move this energy from a blocked position to that of movement.
