Hot Stones Relaxation Massage – 60 mins or 90 mins
A healing and decadent treatment, this treatment will incorporate hot stone therapy into a pampering, nurturing and healing massage.
This relaxation massage utilises the complementary techniques of both oil massage and hot stone therapy. Your therapist will use the warm stones on specific points and meridians of the body, which warms and relaxes the muscles, allowing the therapist to work deep within the muscles during your massage. The warmth from the stones improves circulation and calms the nervous system.
