Luxury Thermal Back Treatment massage or Hot stone massage/ Holistic treatment
1h – £55
Hot Stone therapy is technically termed as Geothermotherapy that is the use of heated stones and chilled stones to affect a chemical release within the human body.
The placing of the stones is followed by a holistic massage, which results in a deeper and more intense treatment. This is because as the heat penetrates the body it relaxes the muscles.
With the application of water-heated basalt stones, hot stone therapy targets key points on the body, giving a deep massage that creates a sensation of comfort and warmth. Warm stones expand the blood vessels, helping to move blood faster round the body, sedating the nervous system.
Deep relaxation, the warmth relaxes both physically and mentally.
The heat from the stones is transferred to the body by conduction and it can reach up to 3 – 4 cm into the muscle.
Stress is reduced, relieving mental and physical fatigue.
Circulation is improved and muscles have an increased blood supply, improving function.
Toxins and waste are eliminated more quickly.
The warmth can relieve pain in muscles and joints.
Tension in connective tissue is released.
There is a deep comfort of receiving warmth on the body.
The direct heat that hot stone therapy provides, relaxes muscles allowing manipulation of a greater intensity than with regular massage.
A Hot Stone therapy massage expands the blood vessels and pushes blood and unwanted waste materials through the body.
It is said that one massage stroke delivered by a Hot Stone therapist whilst using the stones, is actually as powerful as ten normal massage strokes. The effects are thought to last ten times longer than a conventional holistic massage.
Hot Stones Therapy & Massage is suitable and beneficial for everybody, whatever the age!

It is a deep massage, using a variety of pressure and techniques, including circular massage strokes on your scalp, deep tissue work on your shoulders, and stretching the neck.
Indian head massage has become a popular addition to spa treatments or rituals, such as massage and facials.
Benefits of Indian head massage
This form of massage focuses on the three higher “chakras” – mind, body and spirit and as such hits your energy epicentre.
Indian Head Massage and Chakras
Chakras act as a link between the emotional and physical body. This is why balancing the chakras during an Indian head massage treatment can have such positive effects on the mind and body.
What are Chakras ?
There are seven main energy centres (chakras) of the body which resonate with the seven rainbow colours. Anyone who is familiar with Acupuncture will realise that there are, however, a large number of minor chakras throughout the body totalling something in excess of 300.
Chakras are like spirals of energy, each one relating to the others. Chakra (pronounced sha-kra) is the Sanskrit word for ‘ wheel ‘.
If you can imagine the main chakras/energy centres as a set of cogs/wheels, they are rather like the workings of a clock or an engine; each cog/wheel needs to move smoothly and at a similar speed for the clock/engine to work properly. Thus good health and well being is achieved by a balance of all these energies (or the smooth running of the cogs/wheels).
