What is it – Based upon traditional Swedish Massage techniques, hot stones are used to massage the client. Stones can also be used by placing them in strategic positions on the body to create a therapeutic and holistic effect.
What are the benefits – The stones allow for a greater penetration of pressure and work upon an area. The heat of the stones causes increased blood circulation and vasodilation which brings more oxygen and nutrients to tissues and at the same time speeds up the removal of carbon dioxide and waste. Clients can expect increased relaxation, detoxification and soothing within the mind and body.
Is it suitable for all – Hot Stone Massage is not recommended for anyone with high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, varicose veins, decreased pain sensitivity or inflamed skin. Clients are advised to contact Emer directly if they are any way unsure of their suitability.
