"Beautiful experience, very nurturing & deeply relaxing effect lasted for days"
The aim of reflexology is to “create homeostasis, which means that the organs in the body are all working together and at their best.”
What is hot stone reflexology?
This is where hot stones are incorporated into a reflexology treatment; using large stones to warm and massage the legs and feet, and small stones to work reflex points and more specific areas.
Hot Stone massage originated in India and China and has been around for centuries; ancient civilizations believed that hot stones cleansed the body and relaxed the heart, grounding the soul and soothing the mind. As the name implies, the treatment involves using smooth stones which are heated and are used to massage the lower leg and to carry out the reflexology.
The treatment is extremely relaxing for the client and invokes a deep sense of relaxation. It is especially wonderful in the winter months to experience the pleasure of heat.
Hot stones have been shown to reduce cortisol levels and help to support the parasympathetic nervous system to help the body reverse the stress reaction. Cool stones may also be used if there are any muscle injuries or inflammation such as varicose veins.
Hot stones can be added to a general or specialist reflexology treatment for an additional £5. Or choose the deluxe 75-minute treatment to really indulge and treat yourself!
