This deeply soothing massage combines the relaxing effects of hot volcanic stones with knot-busting deep tissue massage techniques.

What happens during a hot stones massage?
After an initial discussion to decide which treatment is most beneficial for you, we leave you in private to undress to your underwear and lie on a sumptuously warmed bed where you are covered in fluffy towels to maintain your modesty.
The Basalt stones are heated in a special oven where they are maintained at a therapeutic level. You will be made comfortable on a massage couch where only the part of the body being massaged will be exposed.
Warm oil is massaged into your skin, followed by massage using the hot stones. The heat from the stones and the massage skills of the therapist result in deep penetration into the muscles thus enhancing the therapeutic effects.
