Since ancient times, hot stones have been used for both physical and spiritual healing.  

  • Hot Stone Massage not only dispels tensions and soothes the soul but also enhances lymph flow, removes toxins, and fortifies the immune system.  
  • The treatment causes blood vessels to dilate, leading to improved circulation and consequently improved oxygen, nutrient, antibody, and protective cell supply to the area of the body under the stones.  It is extremely effective for joint problems, back pain, and sore muscles.  

By incorporating the metaphysical properties of gemstones and the healing effects of reiki, this massage also stimulates the meridians and chakras, gently dissipating energetic blockages.

The power of the stones, the warmth of the treatment, and the massage itself unite in this holistic therapy to provide deep relaxation and calm that recharges the body and soul.


Very warm, soothing, smooth, mineral rich basalt stones glide over the body with heated oil, using traditional massage techniques, chakra balancing and Reiki, effectively creating positive energy flow, balance and harmony within the mind, body & spirit, while relieving tension in your tired, aching muscles, to totally de-stress your body.  Effective for circulation problems, insomnia, anxiety, muscle aches, back pain and more.

...You begin your journey by reclining on a series of flat hot stones that trace your spine. Your skin welcomes their therapeutic energy like ripples in a pool of water. Within minutes, your body and mind begin to trust and respond to the sensations. Your breathing slows as warm oils are applied to your skin, the therapist, with hot stones in hands, rhythmically glide across your meridian lines. The waves of heat surprise your senses, quickly converting to bliss. The sensation of 'a thousand hands' sweep the energy throughout your body.

Heated Chakra stones align and balance your energy centres, sending their healing properties deep into your core. Beginning at the leg, the stones seamlessly glide, relaxing any tension, up the thigh and along the side of the torso .... up, then down .... and again.  Coin-sized stones are lightly wedged between your toes, radiating heat as your leg becomes cradled in the warm blanket.

Upper and lower arms receive the same loving touch, massaging right to your fingertips, all in a delicate, non-stop ritual. Large stones are gently cradled in your palms as you become enveloped in the soft, warm blanket.

Your chest and shoulders receive the same mindful practice. Clearing the lymph system of any toxins.  Delicate attention is paid to the face, ears and sinus points, calming any remaining stresses until they melt away. Warm oils and velvety smooth stones glide up and down your neck and shoulders, culminating in a relaxing head massage and Reiki healing.  You completely lose track of where the therapist's hands end and the velvety-soft stones begin.  Hot towels cradle your face, removing any impurities from the outside world.

As the first half of the treatment concludes, your body welcomes more to come. As you gently turn to rest upon your stomach, you receive a relaxing reflexology foot massage and warm stones are placed upon the soles of your feet.

A large, flat, hot stone is carefully placed on the towel, just above the tail bone. A sequence of synchronized movements follow the peaks and curves of your body, careful not to cross your spine or come in contact with bones and joints. 

More heated stones caress and massage every inch of your body with warmth and sedation, while carefully selected and positioned gemstones soothe the soul.

You're gently guided through the treatment to a world beyond.  It's as if Mother Nature is healing you with her own tender hands......healing and balancing your mind, body and spirit.

 


  • Please arrive 15 minutes before your appointment time to complete and review a health questionnaire to ensure a safe and effective session.

I work with holly oil which has no scent.  The oil comes from the branches and leaves of the holly plant and is then de-ionized.  A water based Vitamin E is then added, along with Jojoba as a therapeutic moisturizer to add glide. It is a non-scented, non-staining oil.  It is not likely to cause allergic reactions as it is not a nut-based oil.

I always hold the stones first before touching them to your body, which ensures that the temperature will not be too hot.  However, everyone has their own comfort range, so be sure to speak up if the stones are too hot for you.
