Hot Rock Therapies

Indulge in Hot Rock Therapy – Massage! Reiki! Reflexology! Esthetics!

Have you imagined a hot rock treatment or massage? If you have never

experienced this unique indulgence, you owe yourself this exquisite moment.

Stone/Rock massage is a unique natural connection we experience. This

treatment offers a sense of profoundness and sacredness that we often forge

in the business of our lives. It’s a deeply healing and intimately, unique

moment that enhances our awareness and brings us closer to our true essence.

It is the perfect treatment that is as enjoyable and healing for the

therapist as it is for the client.

Hot Rock Therapies involve the application of water-heated basalt stones or sometimes cold white marble stones of varying sizes to key points on the body, giving a deep massage and creating sensations of comfort and warmth. The direct heat relaxes muscles, allowing  manipulation of a greater intensity than with regular massage.

For skeletal-muscular injury and inflammation, frozen, cooling marble stones

are used. This creates a type of thermotherapeutic ‘vascular gymnastics’ in

the circulatory system to help the body detoxify and heal. Cold stones are

often used for sports injuries and in applications of esthetic natures. The

warmer rocks expand the blood vessels, pushing blood and unwanted waste

materials through the body. Heat has a sedative effect on the nervous


The cold rocks cause the blood vessels to constrict, stimulating the nervous

system and drawing blood and waste products along the body. This ensures

that every cell in the body receives more oxygen and nutrients while at the

same time waste material is removed more effectively through the

corresponding increase in lymph flow. This would be similar to changing the

old oil in your car for a new filter and clean oil – good body maintenance.

It is a unique experience to feel the deeply relaxing, penetrating heat from

the basalt stones alternating with the toning and refreshing coolness of the

marble stones. The use of extremes of temperature has long been

scientifically and medically proven to be of benefit to the body. Those who

wish to relax and tone their muscles with a minimum of effort see this in

the use of ice packs for muscle trauma and the use of saunas.

Hot Rock applications, whether in esthetics, reiki, reflexology, facials,

manicures, pedicures or massage makes you feel deeply relaxed, allowing you

to let go of all the stress that is held within your body. It is really an

amazing experience to offer to the ones you love!
