Remedial Hot Stone Fusion

Remedial Hot Stone Fusion

Remedial hot stone fusion is a mixture of remedial massage techniques incorporating smooth, flat, hot stones warming up the body, encouraging deeper muscle relaxation.

The stones are natural basalt stones – a type of volcanic rock believed to be therapeutic and have marvellous healing energy. They are high in iron, magnesium and other minerals, allowing them to retain their heat for extended periods of time. The stones are heated to between 55 to 60 degrees and can be adjusted to suit each person’s needs.

Benefits of Hot Stone Massage:

• Helps reduce headaches
• Improves sleep
• Relieves muscular tension
• Increases circulation, as the heat causes the blood vessels to expand, allowing more blood flow around the body
• Relaxation – reduces stress + anxiety + depression
• Relief from osteoarthritis and arthritis pain
• Increases metabolism
• Boosts the immune system
• Increases flexibility and range of motion
• Great alternative for people with a low pain tolerance
• Releases toxins from the body

Contraindications:

• Pregnant women
• High blood pressure
• Skin conditions (e.g. eczema / open wounds)
• Heart disease / pacemaker
• Flu / infection
• Diabetes

If you suffer from high levels of stress, anxiety or depression, the soothing nature of hot stone massage has a calming effect on the nervous system and helps to ease the mind.
